This education venture has been set up at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House in Manchester and is backed by The Bowland Charitable Trust. Space within the house has been converted to create a new high spec educational space within the University District of Manchester.

The CoachHouse will provide Manchester and North West schools with exciting and stimulating learning experiences.

Lectures, hands-on learning sessions, seminars and talks using the talents of lectures and PhD students from local universities.

“I want to fire the imagination and ambition of all students to take challenging subjects at university” Tony Cann, Bowland Charitable Trust

Our Autumn programme features events in partnership with The School of Chemical Engineering at The University of Manchester.

Details of all events are available on our website
