Life at Abbey College Manchester offers a unique, rich learning experience with outstanding pastoral support and welfare and a range of enrichment activities.
The vision is to create all-rounded students who excel academically and develop their emotional, interpersonal and social skills in readiness for their university lives and beyond.
Our community is made up of young people from many different countries as well as from a variety of backgrounds, faiths and cultures within Manchester and the surrounding area. The students are valued and nurtured within an environment where the principal emphasis is that of respect and value for one another.
“The college is successful in its aim to guide students to respect and value one another. This is a community with young people from many countries as well as from a variety of backgrounds, faiths and cultures within the city and surrounding area. They are valued and nurtured within an environment where the principal emphasis is that of respect – for people, place and property. Parental responses to the pre-inspection questionnaire comment favourably on their child’s behaviour and confidence and are appreciative of the changes effected by the college.
The contribution of the curriculum and extra-curricular provision is excellent. The varied and well-constructed curriculum fully supports the aim of the college to help and guide students to achieve academic success. Class sizes are small and flexibility both in the subjects offered and in the courses available enables programmes of study to be matched to a large degree to the individual ability and needs of students.”
