Global Entrepreneurship Week

In recognition of our contribution to the Global Entrepreneurship Week 2015, we have been selected as the winner of the High Impact Award 2015.

Global Entrepreneurship Week offered an opportunity to demonstrate whole school impact and embedding of enterprise into the curriculum.  We were delighted to receive the High Impact Host award which acknowledged the work undertaken by the school during Global Entrepreneurship Week, 16-20 November 2015.

It was an inspirational week and a full programme of activities was delivered in celebration. We would like to say a most sincere thank you to the teams of staff, across the school, who offered so much support thus ensuring such success.
