    The college was established in 1954 as the Bishop Burton Farm Instituteand was one of the first in the country to be awarded beacon status in May 1999 for 'the exceptional quality of its agricultural courses as well as outstanding student support'. The college was the first land-based college in the United Kingdom to achieve both parts of the Learning and Skill Council's Training Quality Standard. In October 2002, the University of Hull agreed to validate the land-based undergraduate courses at the college.A February 2017 Ofsted inspection report rated the college's overall effectiveness as 'good'. In June 2017, the college was ranked bronze by the Teaching Excellence Framework according to its standard of undergraduate teaching.

    In July 2005, the college unveiled plans for a £17 million redevelopment, which would result in new facilities for animals, learning, sports and student accommodation. The main site in Bishop Burton has a 360-hectare mixed farm which includes a high-welfare pig unit and sheep facilities. There is residential accommodation for 300 students, two hostels, a gym, sports hall and numerous catering establishments.
