Temple Newsam Home Farm

With a thriving landscape, our vibrant School of Land & Animal Sciences is based at Home Farm. The farm is enveloped by acres of picturesque parkland and scenic gardens that are overlooked by a listed Tudor-Jacobean mansion. 

Home Farm houses our animal care and animal management courses, allowing students to get hands-on practical experience of raising farm animals and observing wildlife. As one of the largest working rare breed farms in Europe, it’s only one of 16 to be nationally approved by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

Is support available at each campus for exams and coursework?

Yes, all students have access to a huge support network at every campus including wellbeing, pastoral support, and support with their studies.

Can students get travel funding support to Temple Newsam?

Travel funding is available for everyone to apply at all campuses. Eligibility is assessed on household income and level of need.

Can I get a copy of my son/daughter’s timetable?

You can get a copy once the student has enrolled (end of August) and if it complies with GDPR.

Can students choose which campus they will study at?

No, students attend the campus that hosts their course. For example, animal care courses are available at Temple Newsam. Students can use the library, canteen facilities, and student resources at other campuses as long as they have their Leeds City College student pass.

Does Leeds City College hold parents’ evenings?

This depends on the course that the student is studying, as different curriculum areas deliver parent feedback differently. This will be sorted by the specific teachers and heads of department.
