We are a dynamic, exciting college situated in the heart of Manchester providing high quality, flexible programmes of study. A recent student survey highlighted how much our students enjoy the cultural, educational and business opportunities afforded by learning in the city centre. Our modern building provides an environment conducive to study and in our small classes each student can develop their individual aptitudes aided by a strong system of tutorial guidance. Teaching and learning is rigorous whilst being creative and responsive to individual need.

Our enrichment activities include sports, voluntary work, charity events and many other opportunities led by the students and staff. We encourage students to raise their own expectations and standards to the highest possible level. Staff, students and families get to know each other well and enjoy working together.

At Abbey College Manchester we offer a unique alternative to the traditional school whilst maintaining a strong academic ethos. Everyone contributes, everyone is appreciated; our committed teachers love their subjects and seek to inspire their students, in their turn, to love learning and value the acquisition of knowledge.
