Tours for Year 11's - Openshaw Campus

Our School Liaison Team are delighted to offer small group-sized tours of our Openshaw campus for Year 11 pupils who are interested in applying or have applied to join us.

Each tour will last approximately 1 hour and will include:

  • Registration
  • An introductory talk
  • The opportunity to experience college life by seeing some of the main communal areas and facilities available for our students including our canteen, Starbucks coffee shop and library
  • A tour and talk about the fantastic support available at The Manchester College, including our Careers and Welfare Hub and Student Support offices
  • A tour of our industry standard teaching areas including; Creative and Digital Media, Engineering and our state-of-the-art Automotive workshop
  • The opportunity for Year 11's to ask any questions they may have about college life and the range of courses on offer

Please note

Due to construction work on our £25 million new state-of-the art facilities at our Openshaw campus, not all areas will be available to visit on the tours including: Construction, Sport, Public Services, Health and Social and Childhood Studies.

We are currently making plans for our New Student Welcome Day to take place in early July and will be sending all applicants further information about this event shortly. This event will provide Year 11 applicants further opportunities to come onto campus, get involved in taster activites and meet their college tutors as well as other students who have applied to the College.

You're welcome to book onto these campus tours, or you may prefer to wait for your invitation to our New Student Welcome Day instead.
