The campus offers lots of different services, which are available to students as well as the public.
Brinsbury students also have access to all the facilities that are based within our Chichester Campus - including the learning resource centres, fitness gym, hair salon, beauty salon and other eateries.
The campus encompasses 570 acres of beautiful Sussex Weald countryside, has its own working farm with dairy and beef cattle, sheep and pigs, and a bespoke farm teaching centre. Our fields, dairy and livestock sheds will be your classroom. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with agricultural machinery including tractors, and with some livestock enterprises or other related companies.
Our Animal Centre opened in 2013, and includes outstanding facilities such as a large teaching collection of animals housed in modern, purpose-built accommodation. Species include tropical and arid reptiles, invertebrates, amphibians and exotic mammals. We also have outdoor animals including donkeys, alpacas, sheep, goats and poultry.
Our Animal Centre is also home to a laboratory, commercial dog grooming parlour and a veterinary nursing suite with operating theatre and consulting room.
Our Equine Centre is a British Horse Centre approved training and examination centre. It’s made up of indoor stabling, an indoor arena with training mirrors and cameras, outdoor all-weather arenas, BSJA jumps, cross-country schooling fences and new laboratory facilities.
Our state-of-the-art forge was refurbished in 2017 and combines cutting edge technology with traditional tools, ensuring our blacksmith and farriery students will be able to learn using a variety of techniques. It’s home to a range of facilities, including coke, ceramic chip and gas forges – as well as a welding facility and power hammer.
Brinsbury College has limited parking on site, and spaces are in high demand – particularly during term-times.
From September 2021, an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system will be in operation at the college, and you will need to pre-register your car registration to obtain an E-Permit.

We will encourage students to eat well through our wellbeing focus. We know from research that a healthy lifestyle with the right nutrients has an impact on everyone’s mood, health, behaviour and ability to concentrate during the day. Our menus are nutritionally balanced, and encourage students to make balanced choices and choose a healthier lifestyle now and into the future.
Brinsbury College values its student voice and this is reflected through the work of ChiSU, the union run by students for students.
