EnrichmentSuccess in life comes from more than just exams so all students are encouraged to broaden their horizons beyond the classroom to develop new skills and broaden their outlook on life
Our diverse Enrichment Programme supports our academic curriculum and forms an integral part of the wider education and college experience offered to our students. Our vision is to create all-rounded students, who excel academically and develop their emotional, interpersonal and social skills.
Students involve themselves in a range of sports including football, basketball, table tennis and badminton, as well as having access to exercise and fitness facilities.
Other activities include yoga; art; film; creative writing; photography; crafting and debating.
The Abbey College Manchester band is highly talented and regularly performs at events and assemblies.
The college is involved in national awards initiatives including the Engineering Education Scheme and the Bank of England Project and arranges a number of fundraising activities and events for local charities.
All departments offer educational visits to enhance the curriculum. These include residential fieldwork in the Lake District for Geography students, theatre trips, visits to museums and galleries and to our local universities for teaching input.
Links with a number of local businesses have been built up to give students a flavour of what different sectors can offer and the skills they are looking for in candidates. Interactive workshops and voluntary work placements have all contributed to this.
