Reaseheath College graduates were hailed at a special graduation in Nantwich.

The graduation ceremony, held in St Mary’s Church, celebrated more than 100 graduates who had completed degrees validated by Harper Adams University.

Animal management undergraduates on University of Chester programmes graduate at Chester Cathedral in November.

Guest of honour was Sally Gunnell OBE, a former international elite athlete who remains the only woman ever to hold four major track titles concurrently – Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth.

Reaseheath Principal Meredydd David said analysis shows spending £40,000 on course fees and living expenses would bring in nearly a third of a million pounds during a career.

And he revealed 94% of Reaseheath graduates who completed their degree last year were in related employment at a starting salary of £21,000 within six months.


Reaseheath’s HE faculty currently has 700 undergraduates studying for degrees such as equine, agricultural and animal science, landscape design, food technology, engineering and countryside, adventure sports and rural events management.

At the celebration, 14 graduates were singled out for the excellence of their studies:
