Governance and leadership

At Hartpury, we believe we are the best at what we do and we aim to continue to lead the way by innovating and evolving to give our students the best possible experience and environment in which to develop, supported by experienced and passionate staff.

Developing a high performing organisation that develops and is guided by strong and effective leaders with the vision and energy to deliver our strategic aims is key to that ambition.

Hartpury - The Future

With more than £50million invested, we have grown and developed over the last 20 years into a leading education provider across all of our specialist areas and, in 2016, we had record numbers of both College and University Centre students.

In 2017, Hartpury was granted ‘Taught Degree Awarding Powers’ (TDAP) and we will award our own degrees from September 2018. This provides us with the independence to grow and further strengthen our Higher Education offering.

Our Hartpury 2020 Strategy sets out our vision and plans for growth and enhancing the quality of our provision so that we enable our students to be the best they can become.
