'Steps to Success'

As part of Enterprise Week, Young Enterprise Northern Ireland hosted ‘Digital Industry Masterclass’ in partnership with Newtownabbey Borough Council at Mossley Mill. Students were tasked with the challenge to come up with a smartphone application to help young people. Abbey Community College students achieved first place against four other participant schools. The winning group proposed a smartphone app ‘Steps to Success’ which looked at helping students with their GCSE’s. 






As ‘a school at the heart of the community with the community at the heart of the school’ Abbey Community College works in partnerships with parents, local business and community based groups to build opportunities for community education, sports participation and family support. Current partners include:

  • Business in the Community
  • Monkstown Boxing Club
  • Monkstown Village Centre
  • Barnardos
  • Start 360
  • Henderson Group
  • Danske Bank
  • Young Enterprise

As an active member of Newtownabbey Learning Community, collaboration with other local schools and Northern Regional College will enhance the curriculum by providing students with access to a wide range of academic and vocational courses at GCSE and Post 16.

Bridge Youth Club will operate for local children and young people of all ages in the evenings over the course of the week.
