Welcome from the Principal


Welcome to Manchester Enterprise Academy where our Vision is a Fantastic Future for All and we focus relentlessly on the MEA Way of being safe, respectful and ready at all times.

I was proud to join the fantastic MEA community in January 2020 and I aim to ensure that all students here have the best possible preparation for their lives and careers. Whilst examination results are vitally important, they are not the whole picture: social, personal, and employability skills are also essential, as is an understanding of the wider world and society.

Our academic curriculum is complemented by our Fantastic Futures curriculum designed to develop students’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural character.  This curriculum provides students with the experiences, skills and attributes to understand the word around them and is equally important to achieving a Fantastic Future.

MEA’s purpose built site provides excellent academic facilities, with amongst other things specialist science laboratories, dance and art studios and a multi-sport facility including a full-size artificial rugby and football pitch.

We also offer a wonderful range of extra-curricular activities at MEA, known as MEA X-Tras, which take place both after school and during break times and really do offer something for everyone.

We hope you find everything you need on our website, but welcome you to get in touch if there is anything else you would like to know. We look forward to welcoming you and your child to MEA.

Kind regards

Ruth Bradbury

MEA Principal

    Very different ‘classroom essentials’, this half term included hand sanitiser, antibacterial wipes & so on... One academy essential, however, remained the same - Excellent staff. A huge thank you to all staff for your hard work during this term. Amazing Team. 💫💫💫

    What a half term! During very different times, the MEA community came together to support, help and inspire each other. Wishing our wonderful staff & students a restful break.

    Art lessons delivered in maths classrooms, science practicals conducted using visualisers, drama lessons in humanities classrooms... the list goes on & on. Even during very different times, ensuring that our students access a broad & rich curriculum remains a key priority.
