Standing in its own stunning grounds of more than 50 hectares, the school is conveniently located near the small, historic town of Ellesmere, and is less than 100 kilometres from both of England's second major cities, Manchester and Birmingham. Students can benefit from the vast range of activities both cities have to offer whilst living and studying in a tranquil English country setting. Situated midway between Chester and Shrewsbury, Ellesmere is just off the A495 and is easily accessed via the UK motorway network.

The EDGE Lectures have been a key part of Ellesmere College’s Leadership and Entrepreneurship Programme for Sixth Form students for many years now – designed

to enrich the offering given to students to give them the ‘edge’ when it comes to entering the world of university and work.

Each term, the College invites back key speakers from our network of over 5000 Old Ellesmerians (OEs), parents and local business people, who bring their expertise and experience to deliver inspiring and informative talks on subjects related to business, entrepreneurship and careers.

Nick Pettingale, Director of External Relations, commented, “At Ellesmere we believe in the individual and therefore ‘The Edge’ lectures create a breadth of professional input and real life experience for our students to learn from. The most exciting aspect from my perspective is the individual connections that are created with our speakers. Anyone in business today knows that success is based on relationships and our goal with ‘The Edge’ is to create those relationships before our students even leave the Sixth Form”.
