Manchester City is normally associated with Premier League football but the club is now branching out into a new field by supporting the creation of a new sixth-form college.

The club has donated land opposite the Etihad Stadium for the college - so close that there will even be a special footbridge connecting the two!

School Reporters from The East Manchester Academy got a special tour of the site to find out how the plans are shaping up.
