About us

BCA (Berkshire College of Agriculture) is part of The Windsor Forest Colleges Group alongside Langley College , Strode’s College and Windsor College

Who we are

The Windsor Forest Colleges Group was formed in 2017 as a result of a merger between East Berkshire College and Strode’s College in Egham, and later in 2022 a merger with BCA (Berkshire College of Agriculture). Together we have over 300 years of experience and the group provides over 900 full-time, part-time and apprenticeship courses in various subjects, from entry level through to Higher Education.

Our students predominately identify with one particular college campus, but being part of a larger college group means they benefit from greater learning opportunities, access to a wider range of resources and more progression routes.

History of Hall Place

The estate at Hall Place lies some four miles to the west of Maidenhead, a similar distance south of Marlow and east of Henley. At 100 metres above sea level, on high ground overlooking the south bank of the river Thames, the estate lies at the southern boundary of the chalk lands of the Chilterns Hills.

Governance & Policies

The Windsor Forest Colleges Group Corporation is the overarching body that governs Strode’s College, Windsor College, Langley College and BCA. The Corporation was formed following the formal mergers in 2017 and 2022. The Corporation Board, which is a non-executive board, meets at key stages throughout the academic year.
