Our Vision & Values
A Fantastic Future for All
Our vision of ‘a fantastic future for all’ our students is easy to understand but complex to achieve, as the future evolves so rapidly around us. Students have to adapt in order to build themselves a secure and resilient future.
With an innovative curriculum and high expectations in terms of commitment and hard work, we strive to make sure our students can compete with their peers nationally and internationally - this is the MEA way and we reinforce this to our students at all times.
The business partners who lead the trust help us to complement academic achievement with the other skills that employers now demand from their staff. Enterprising, entrepreneurial and networking skills, team working, presenting information and project management are all part of our Fantastic Futures currriculum and, allied to our Pastoral Pledges, this rounded education helps us develop confident young leaders throughout the Academy.
Excellent examination grades are the foundation for a future where students can shape their own careers and our success demonstrates how much the young people of Wythenshawe share this ambition. Manchester Enterprise Academy (MEA) is publicly funded so it is free for your child to attend, but as an Academy we use our freedoms to shape a curriculum and a school experience which is tailor made to support our students’ development into well rounded young people.
Our curriculum is an academic one, we offer all the subjects contained in the ‘English Baccalaureate’ suite of qualifications – English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Modern Foreign Languages as well as a host of other exciting qualifications. Our 6th Form provision is vocational – offering students a chance to specialise in a particular professional qualification and also study business skills. We set high expectations and all of our students have to buy into our ethos of hard work and personal growth so that they can thrive both at MEA and in their future lives.
Our values are based on the British Cultural values of mutual respect, openness and inclusion. We recognise that our community has a different ethnic mix to the city we neighbour and it is vital that our students have an understanding of, and confidence with, the complexity and vibrancy of modern British Culture. We pride ourselves on our inclusive ethos and that students regardless of ability, ethnicity, social background, disability, faith, sexuality or gender identity will succeed at MEA.
Manchester Enterprise Academy presents a fantastic opportunity for your child to achieve academic success at one of the top 100 most improved schools in England. Our results and improvements demonstrate our commitment to transforming the opportunities available to our students. We hope you will join us and become part of our success story.
The academy is a good school that has improved students’ achievement significantly year on year. This reflects its vision, ‘A fantastic future for all. Ofsted, 2015
