Following a meeting with the Save Stratton School Farm group on 13th June and their subsequent public comments, we wish to update you about the closure of Stratton School Farm.
We have explained the challenges facing the school farm and we regret that we now have to confirm that it will close. We are beginning the process of mothballing the farm from 1st July. No students will use the farm from that date and students who have courses to complete will do their practical work at Shuttleworth College.
We are in discussions with Central Bedfordshire Council about the future of the land and any transfer for possible use by a third party. We will let you know if anything further develops.
