Pupils from Gresham’s in Holt have taken part in the school's first-ever agricultural conference. 

They were joined by students from surrounding Norfolk schools, learning about the careers and education opportunities available within the agriculture sector.

A spokesman said: "It was fantastic for the pupils, as they were able to have stimulating discussions on developments in the agriculture field."

There were speakers from Wildfarmed, Farmacy, Pitt Farms, The RNAA and Albanwise Farming, who talked about the direction the agricultural sector was heading in. This was followed by a workshop in the afternoon.

Gresham's has offered the Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Diploma in Agriculture since 2020, with the first cohort earning their certificates in August 2022. 

The certificate is delivered alongside a diploma, which gives pupils an option of either a one or two-year agriculture course to complement their A-levels.
