SMB College Group is proud to be celebrating a highly successful Results season for its Equine and Land-based students!

Brooksby Campus is the College’s specialised land-based site which houses the Brooksby Equestrian Centre, with some truly fantastic facilities for students, including an indoor riding arena, outdoor floodlit arena with British Show Jumping approved jumps and a state-of-the-art Equine Rehabilitation Centre.

Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Equine Management students achieved a 100% pass rate with 48% of students getting at least one distinction, and 80% of students achieving a high grade! Subject areas with fantastic Level 3 pass rates also included Agriculture & Farming, Countryside & Environmental Management and Animal Management.

14 learners from the college’s Level 3 Animal Management programme even received the very top possible grade, D*D*D*


Ezra and Eva SMB

On the day, we spoke to Ezra and Eva about their achievements, Eva was really proud to have achieved D*D*D* in Level 3 Animal Management, stating that she’d worked very hard this academic year. Ezra achieved DDM in Level 3 Horticulture and is planning to take a year out before progressing onto university!


Cono and Savannah SMB

Further successes come from Savannah Ward and Cono Brown, who achieved DDD* and D*D*D*, respectively, and will both shortly be taking the next step towards their dream careers by studying Veterinary Nursing at Askham Bryan!

Level 2 students also did really well on their results, with 100% of students passing their Level 2 Equine & Horticulture qualifications and over half of Equine students receiving Distinctions!

SMB College Group’s Principal, Dawn Whitemore, said ‘I am so incredibly proud of our hard-working and passionate students for a fantastically successful 2023 Results Day. At SMB College Group, we believe in giving students the very best chance to achieve and reach their full potential. Our college values of Resilience, Ambition, Innovation, and Excellence help us to instil a high achieving mindset in our students, and they continue to do us proud across the board. This is only the beginning, and we can’t wait to see how far they go as SMB College Group alumni.’
