The Venue

Eccles Sixth Form College is a centre of vocational excellence, offering a range of vocational courses

" We have one of the country’s most outstanding animal management centres, which extends over four acres of land and includes over 250 different species. Inside we have nocturnal, small mammal, and aquarium rooms sitting alongside well-equipped laboratories and veterinary nursing suites. Those studying equine studies will spend some of their time taught by British Horse Society instructors at the well-renowned Ryders Farm Equestrian Centre, which has an indoor riding arena, cross country course, and over 50 horses.
