Adelphi House was built in 1808 as a two-storey home by Samuel Bury, its occupant for 28 years.  Over the years Bury's 2-storey house underwent numerous redesigns and additions.  In 1853 the nuns of the Order of the Faithful Companions of Jesus moved into the house.  Their order had been founded in France but moved to England in 1830 settling first in the area near today's Euston Station in London. The mission of the nuns was to, "reach out to the spiritually and materially deprived by means of education", and to that end, they converted the house into a convent and a school.

The Adelphi House School continued to operate in a variety of forms until 1977 when Comprehensive Education was introduced for all Catholic children in Salford.  It resulted in the closure of the school as it merged with the Sacred Heart School to form the new Cathedral High School. The nuns continued to live at Adelphi and the school building was used as a part of the Cathedral High School.

Today, Adelphi House is part of the University of Salford's campus and is occupied by the team at Salford Professional Development. Here, the team plan, design and deliver industry-leading conferences and courses to delegates from both the public and private sector
