Sustainable futures

Supporting our students

Bishop Burton College is an open and welcoming environment which attracts a diverse student population and provides equal opportunities for all. We strive to support individual needs so that all students can achieve their full potential.

It's important to us that students are fully prepared for the future, so we focus on developing their employability and ensuring their skills meet local and national needs.

Students will remain at the core of everything we do, with safeguarding being a key strategic driver. The safety, health and wellbeing of our students - both residential and non-residential - is an absolute priority.

Working with industry

We actively engage with industry and the local community, optimising the use of our specialist teaching facilities, rural environment, farm and estate.

Bishop Burton College works with an expanding range of key industry partners with an ambition to further grow its reputation, both regionally and nationally, as a centre of technical excellence and innovation with class-leading facilities.


Sustainability is at the core of the college’s strategy and underpins our ambition for growth and quality improvement.
