Myerscough College

Myerscough College hosts visits from primary and secondary schools across the North West. Visits to the dairy farm are always popular as is the sheep farm at lambing time. To complement the farm visits schools can undertake other activities appropriate to the key stage.

Primary schools often go minibest hunting or become nature detectieves and may also look at "Where does your food come from?" which includes a visit to the edible zone of the plant centre where the pupils can see citrus fruits, cotton plants plus other items growing.

Secondary and A level groups also visit the college and bespoke pakages are put together for these groups. In the past schools have looked at inputs, outputs and processes on the farm as well as soil analysis and breeding technologies and genetics.
