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. The subjects on offer to study at this campus are animal care, business, computing, creative & digital media, design & visual arts, hair & beauty, childcare studies, health care & well being, public services and theatrical & media make-up.
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.
Northenden is an up-and-coming suburb in the South of Manchester, sitting on the South side of the River Mersey and M60 motorway, making it easy to reach by car from any direction.
A bustling farmers market takes place on the first Saturday of every month, where you can buy local produce and artisan groceries. A section of the River Mersey runs through Northenden and one of its most popular parts is the weir, which now has a fish ladder, so migrating salmon and sea trout can get upstream, making it ideal for a spot of fishing!
