Bucksmore Summer Programmes


Plumpton College, near Brighton


Plumpton College is an amazing location at the foot of the South Downs and only 20 minutes away from the seaside town of Brighton. The College is an agricultural college during the academic year and as such it has a working farm; an Animal Care Centre; stables including one of the best horse-riding schools in the country; and beautiful grounds which can be used for outside activities.

Students stay in the college bedrooms, many of which were completely new in 2010. The classrooms are a short walk from the bedrooms, as is the dining room. The location, tranquillity and safety of Plumpton college make it a firm favourite of students aged 11-17.

Students can choose horse riding as an optional extra at Plumpton, using the indoor and outdoor riding schools.
