About Manchester Enterprise Academy
Manchester Enterprise Academy (MEA) opened in 2010 and is proud to be part of the Prospere Learning Trust. After an £11.6 million investment, MEA opened the doors to its new world-class educational campus in September 2017.
This new £11.6m campus now has an additional teaching building, The Durie Building, which incorporates a Theatre, Art, Fashion and Dance studios, and brand new Science laboratories. There is also a new £1 million multi-sport facility which includes a full-size 3G rugby and football pitch and other redeveloped sports facilities. We also have a new cafe and dining facilities, an additional Food Technology room and refurbished ICT, Business and Modern Foreign Language classrooms.
The Trust believes that in order to deliver our vision of a fantastic future for all our students, it is important that they achieve the best academic results possible. Our vision of a “Fantastic Future for All Our Students” is easy to understand, but complex to achieve, as the future evolves so rapidly around us. Students have to adapt in order to build themselves a secure and resilient future. We focus relentlessly on the MEA Way, of Safe, Respectful and Ready. The business partners who lead the trust help us to complement academic achievement with the other skills that employers demand of their staff. Enterprising, entrepreneurial and networking skills, team working, presenting information and project management are all part of our Fantastic Futures curriculum and, allied to our Pastoral Pledges and aligned to our outstanding SMSC provision
We work incredibly hard to attract the best teachers and our teacher training provision is graded outstanding by Manchester University. We believe that our teachers’ expertise needs to inspire our students by allowing them to shape and craft exciting learning experiences. Our teaching model emphasises excellent classroom dynamics between staff and students. Exams are a serious business, learning is an emotional journey – students who enjoy learning perform far better than those who are uninspired.
Beyond the classroom, as well as having a range of sports teams and experiences, we expect our students to take part in at least two enrichment activities per week. We offer break and after school clubs linked to our curriculum area and there is something for everyone on each day. We also open from 7.45 for Breakfast Club offering a longer school day and flexibility for all families.
