Home to strong scientific heritage
A town rich in industrial history, Macclesfield is just one of the four areas covered by the Macclesfield Pledge, the others being the towns of Knutsford, Wilmslow and Poynton. The area boasts strong scientific heritage hosting the UK’s largest single-site life science campus offering state-of-the-art laboratory and office space for life science and digital tech companies.
The Macclesfield Pledge Area, 10 of the mainstream high schools and their sixth forms plus the local college, Macclesfield College are engaged. We also support two special schools and two independent schools. We also work with over 100 employers engaged within the patch.
How we work
