About Us

Abbey College Manchester is an independent sixth form college situated on Cheapside in Manchester city centre.

Most of our 220 students study A-Levels, GCSEs or one of our International Foundation Programme pathways. A unique alternative to A-Levels called the Combined Studies Programme has now been developed and introduced. Another exciting and popular programme of study is the Academic Studies with Football Training, which offers the students the opportunity to combine GCSE, A-Level or the International Foundation Programme study with their passion for football.  We strongly believe that the discipline of sport helps support academic study in the form of the 5 Rs; Routine, Rigour, Responsibility, Resilience and Reflection.  We offer a friendly, safe, supportive environment where students can achieve their goals and move on to their chosen university.

Our flexible programmes and personalised learning, combined with our strong academic ethos offer a unique alternative to traditional schools.
