We believe that students should become enterprising people, ready to embark on new ventures full of boldness and initiative.

Students will study Enterprise and Entrepreneurship as a key part across the curriculum. Students will take part in an Enterprise Week each year and there will be further opportunities in each curriculum subject and through enrichment activities.

Discussions and informal agreements are already in place with several companies. Planned involvement includes:

  • Providing information and talks to students, including involvement in Enterprise days.

  • Contributing to enterprise learning in the Academy, for example through specific tasks or through leading elements of the daily enrichment programme

  • Providing work experience opportunities

  • Sponsorship

  • Use by businesses of the Academy’s facilities (e.g. local performing arts groups and sports providers)
