We are an Enabling Enterprise partnership school. Through this we hope to develop the enterprise skills and experiences of work and aspirations to succeed.
We work in partnership with schools and businesses such as Metro Bank, IBM, BT, Hamleys, Virgin Active and The London Business School. Enterprise is now a core part of the school experience through special projects, trips and Challenge days.
Enterprise Skills are communicated widely with children so that they can identify their own progress in each skill:
Participation in Enabling Enterprise has been seen to have great impact on pupils at primary school - see the 2017 Impact Report here
Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by travelling to a distant moon and piecing together clues to catch the Sugar Snatcher. This years challenge will be all about Future Transport and the Challenge Day will be in March - watch this space for more news!
In July we participated in Global Entrepreneurship Week. The week began with a visitor from Enabling Enterprise who came and did a launch assembly with the children. She explained what enterprise is and gave real life examples of people who have become entrepreneurs.
She talked about the eight skills the children would need to develop to be effective in enterprise – creativity, team work, aiming high, listening, leadership etc.
We then took part in lots of different exciting projects, culminating in our Summer Showcase where parents could come in and see/buy/sample some of the things the children had been working on. Below are some photos of the day!
