Manchester Enterprise Academy

Manchester Enterprise Academy is a 11-16 school based in Wythenshawe. We are recognised as a “Good” school by Ofsted. At MEA our vision is a Fantastic Future for All. This means that we strive to do everything we can to ensure that every single student has the best possible chance of a fantastic future regardless of background. We believe that our students are best served by achieving the highest possible examination outcomes as these have currency as they progress into the wider world and as such, we strive to ensure that the curriculum meets the needs of all our students. Our academic curriculum is therefore complemented by our Fantastic Futures curriculum. This is designed to develop students’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural character. We strive to provide students with the experiences, skills and attributes to understand the world around them and to develop the cultural capital that is essential to succeed in today’s society. Our facilities are second to none in helping to create an exceptional academic, sporting and cultural environment and enabling us to offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities as we build students’ resilience and knowledge.
