Specialism - Business and Enterprise

We believe our specialist Business and Enterprise College status has helped us to raise standards of achievement and progress by opening up greater opportunities for student and staff development, alongside the provision of improved facilities. 

We are committed to developing a ‘can-do’ culture of enterprise within the school and also within our wider school community. Our concept of enterprise education is strongly linked to our values and ethos and has, at its centre, a commitment to the development of transferable skills amongst our students, strong links with the community and local businesses, and the development of innovative and engaging teaching methods amongst our staff. In the past year, these are just some of the initiatives that have been implemented:  

  • The introduction of a subject-based skills development programme through the CIRCLE skills initiative. CIRCLE represents Communication, Interpersonal, Research, Creative, Learning, Effective Self-Managers. Teachers now regularly build specific focus on these important work-related skills into their lesson planning.
  • Faculty Enterprise Days are a whole-day event for students, organised within each faculty, which is designed to give students the opportunity to demonstrate, develop and apply their skills by working in a team on a specific project.
