A HISTORY AND FUTURE TO BE PROUD OF
Merrist Wood College has been a site for leaning since 1945 when we first started teaching agriculture and horticulture courses. On the 400-acre estate with woodlands, wetlands, livestock, gardens, and grasslands, as well as a campus nursery, workshops, Animal Management Centre, and design studios. We have one of the largest indoor riding arenas of any college in the country and one of the top centres in the southeast as well as stabling for up to 30 horses!
In 2019 Merrist Wood College joined Activate Learning a forward-thinking education group that aims for far-reaching, progressive change and impact through learning. Activate Learning, operates 8 colleges across 3 counties (Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Surrey) united by our award-winning Learning Philosophy, which helps us all understand how our students learn best and how we teach our learners effectively.
