Enterprise Programmes

Enterprise is a key area of development for the school. We believe it is an excellent means of creating purpose for learning for our students and making the link between effort and money as well as developing a huge range of other skills for example:

•          Improved communication skills

•          Improved money recognition and maths skills

•          Breakdown barriers between the public and our students

•          Increase employability skills

•          Develop an understanding of how business works

•          Team work & problem solving

•          Increased enthusiasm by creating clear purpose for learning

•          Increased self-confidence

•          Willingness to take responsibility and show initiative

•          Time management
