The personal development of students is a strength of the Academy with SMSC provision judged as ‘outstanding’ during our most recent Ofsted Inspection. 

Due to our outstanding reputation, excellent results and rapid growth in student numbers, our flagship school, Manchester Enterprise Academy is currently undergoing a £12 million extension, with our state of the art campus opening in September 2017. 

In September 2017, in partnership with Manchester City Council, we will also be opening our brand new Academy, MEA Central, proudly serving the Manchester communities of Rusholme, Withington, Fallowfield and Levenshulme.
