We aim to:

- show a sensitive understanding of the challenges facing young people in the 21st Century by empowering students to make informed decisions and have the determination to achieve their goals
- prepare our students for university, their future careers and to make a positive contribution to the community.
We are a dynamic, exciting college, situated in the heart of Manchester providing high quality, flexible A Level, BTEC, International Foundation and GCSE programmes. 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 sport, 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.
