Northenden Campus is a large, welcoming campus, offering a wide range of courses for school leavers, apprentices, adults and university-level students. We’ve invested £2 million in the campus to make it a great place to study vocational and academic courses. We’ve created a wildlife haven within the grounds and wildlife corridors connecting the site to the beautiful Wythenshawe Park nearby. Some of the facilities at Northenden are open to the public, including beauty salons.

Facilities at Northenden Campus include:

  • fitness suite
  • football pitch
  • games area
  • large library resource centre (LRC)
  • SkillZone with extensive IT tools
