“We focus on building enterprise skills to enable lifelong success so that one day, all students are equipped with the skills, experiences and aspirations to succeed.” Enabling Enterprise
One of our main foci is to prepare our pupils beyond the realm of primary school, opening up opportunities beyond their current life experiences. We do this through our Enterprise Curriculum which brings the world of work into the classroom and provides opportunities to visit an array of employers and have insight to a range of careers.
We are a partner school with Enabling Enterprise, an award-winning not-for-profit organisation whose programme we follow as part of our developing enterprise curriculum. Each year group runs an enterprise project, such as creating and inaugurating an art gallery in Year 1 and setting up a graphic design company in Year 4.

We know both from research and our own experience how beneficial visits are in terms of introducing the idea of work and differing vocations to children. If you would like to support the school's enterprise curriculum, please do get in touch.
