Smiles for miles. 🥰 Beamed through the rain in our jump lesson today. I had SO much fun and Hollie was a dream. We had an interesting start as she couldn’t take her eyes off the horse & cart driving event in the next arena, but she then settled and we worked on keeping her forward into the fences. After a while she was flying and taking me into each one 😍 Side note: @decathlon waterproof breeches are the Best Buy of 2019, thanks to Jess @life_on_the_buckle 💜 #superstar #partnersincrime #irishsportshorse #irishmare #jumppractice #showjumping #wetwetwet

This week our Performing Arts students took the stage for the very first time this year. Our Level 2 and Level 3 first years performed their 'First Draft' Showcase and demonstrated their talent and dedication to the course whilst our Level 3 second years scared audiences in their devised show 'The Fourth Doll'. An amazing group of talented students and a great start to the year, we can't wait for the next show! #thisisbca #college #students #performingarts

bca_college. Recently we had an update from Level 3 Outdoor Education student, Rile

Recently we had an update from Level 3 Outdoor Education student, Riley, on how he spent his summer undertaking his The Duke of Edinburgh's Award by being part of the crew of the Blue Clipper in the Tall Ships Race, 2019, sailing from Bergen in Norway to Aarhus in Denmark. Riley explains "Although I did not have any prior experience with sailing, I learnt everything I needed to know (and more) on the ship from the great crew that I sailed with. Some of the things that I learnt while onboard included how to change sails, washing the deck, cooking different meals in harsh weather conditions and climbing the mast and going onto the bow (the front of the boat) in choppy water where we were almost dunked into the sea. It was an amazing experience and it also helped me with completing my gold DofE which I successfully completed over this summer. I highly recommend this experience to anyone because it takes you out of your comfort zone and offers you an unforgettable experience." #thisisbca #college #outdooreducation #sailing #yacht #studentprofile #dofegold #blueclippersailingyacht #student #maidenhead

On Monday 30th September, Nathan Starrett and Dave Thomas from HMP Huntercombe came in to give our Public Services students an idea about what life is like in a Category C prison. They really surprised students with fascinating examples of the kinds of items they have recovered from prisoners or have found within cells. They also gave a fantastic demonstration with two of their search dogs on how they find concealed items on suspects or hidden within the prison itself. We are always so grateful to our guest presenters who volunteer their time to come and talk to our students, giving them a realistic insight into the careers they could go into after studying with us #publicservices #guestspeaker #searchdog #students #hmphuntercombe #thisisbca #college #maidenhead

#Repost @bca_equine ・・・ Today we have @topspec_horse_feeds nutritionist Jess in for the second of our twice yearly visits. We actively encourage our students’ involvement in these visits, and they can be seen here holding BCA resident donkey Percy and BCA Working Livery Blueberry on the weigh bridge to help determine their feed rations for the winter. Our students discuss with Jess the importance of feeding good quality food stuffs like TopSpec, why our horses’ rations may change throughout the year, and why feeds may differ from horse to horse. All our horses are fed on TopSpec hard feed as standard and is included as part of the Working Livery or Loan fee. If you’d like more information about our Working Livery or Loan options, please email equine-enquiries@bca.ac.uk #desiretolearn #fedontopspec #equinestudies #berkshirecollegeofagriculture #bcaequine #thisisbca #college #maidenhead

bca_college. Our ALFIE (Adult Learning for Independence & Employment) learners star

Our ALFIE (Adult Learning for Independence & Employment) learners started back to College slightly later than our other students, but they have begun the term with lots of exciting days with a great new cohort of students. There are 12 classes running this year including several cookery classes, animal experiences, floristry craft, fun with reading and writing, photography, craft fun and our new courses drama and online safety and digital media. Some of our students have been collecting materials from our beautiful campus for their craft project while others have been busy getting familiar with the onsite kitchen, cooking brownies in their 'Cooking with Confidence' class, which encourages them to be more independent in the kitchen, learning how to follow a recipe, different cooking techniques and promotes healthy eating #alfie #independentlearning #thisisbca #college #maidenhead
