Northumberland College has a rural campus based at Kirkley Hall near Ponteland. Land Based curriculum is based here and includes an Animal Management section.

Contained within the building are four classrooms, toilets and rooms dedicated to exotics, post mortem, rodents etc
The vision of the college is to develop the Animal Management Centre by expanding the variety of animals housed, the standard of animal accommodation, the working practices also to have a dual role as a first class learning resource and visitor attraction.
