Abbey College Manchester offers our students state-of-the-art facilities and a friendly, safe and supporting environment, allowing students to flourish, achieve their goals, and move on to the university course of their choice.

There are approximately 220 students at the college. Some are preparing for A-Levels, some studying for their GCSEs, and more studying our International Foundation Programmes. We offer a wide range of subjects at all levels, offer a strong welfare system and high quality higher education and career advice to all of our students.

Abbey College Manchester students benefit from state-of-the-art facilities including touch screens, laptop computers and interactive white boards, and all students have their own personal computer login and access to teaching resources on the student shared drive. There is a college wireless connection available throughout the building.

The study of Biology, Chemistry and Physics rely heavily heavily on practical work, so each subject is taught in a modern, subject specific science laboratory,. Each classroom is fitted out to the highest standards, allowing the delivery of a broad spectrum of experiments and demonstrations to stimulate learning.

We are also very very proud of our dedicated Art & Design and Photography studios. Students can pick from techniques such as 3D Modelling, textiles, sculpture and photography alongside more conventional arts like painting and drawing. Photography students also have their own dark room to develop and enhance their work.

There is a large dedicated study centre with silent area and a supervised study area, where students may use college laptops or their own for personal work.
