The Gresham’s Agriculture Conference was a great opportunity for pupils to hear from industry experts

Gresham’s pupils, along with pupils from surrounding Norfolk schools, attended the first Annual Gresham’s Agriculture Conference organised by our Careers and Agriculture Departments. During the morning’s formal lectures, they heard from industry experts on the direction of travel of the sector, all aimed at trying to find solutions that enable us to feed the world while being sympathetic to the environment. Thanks go to Phil Jarvis and Anthony Blanchfield from Albanwise Farming, John Purslow from Farmacy, Mark Nicholas from the RNAA, Ali Cargill from Pitt Farms Ltd and Andy Coecup from Wildfarmed for engaging with participants so expertly. The afternoon’s interactive workshop saw representatives from all corners of the industry interacting with pupils as they explored careers, education pathways and gap years in the sector. Our thanks go to all those who gave so freely of their time to support the pupils’ development. See you all next year!
