Coniston prides itself in offering a wide range of cultural activities that broaden students’ perspectives and give them insights into new fields of knowledge. Throughout the year the following are offered:
At Coniston we hold a traditional Christmas carols event for students, family and friends. We also hold other fund-raising concerts throughout the year which present a great opportunity for music students to perform and for all to enjoy.

Every year students at Coniston have the opportunity to take part in the well known UNIV university congress in Rome. Read more…
For those who are interested, Coniston also offers Christian formation. The religious formation is entrusted to Opus Dei, a Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church. Opus Dei helps ordinary men and women find holiness in their everyday work and family life. In Coniston, this means helping students discover a deeper meaning in their studies and the richness of the Catholic faith.
These are informal get-togethers were students share with each other the food, music and culture of their home countries.
At Coniston we have a tradition of monthly lectures given by visiting professionals. Recent speakers have included Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham, Sir Peter Fahy, former Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, Dr Karl McLaughlin, Senior Lecturer in Spanish, Languages, Linguistics and TESOL at Manchester Metropolitan University and professional interpreter, Dr Dmytro Kundys, of University of Manchester School of Physics and Astronomy, the Graphene Institute. Previous speakers have included Sir Howard Bernstein, Chief Executive of Manchester City Council, Mr Gerry Pennell the Chief Information Officer of the London 2012 Olympics and Director of IT at the University of Manchester, and Mrs Jane Davies OBE, Chief Executive of Manchester Science Parks.
