Developing a ‘Business Brain’ in our children is an important aspect for a 21st century learner. We have developed learning opportunities for the children as they progress through the school, in order to equip them with relevant entrepreneurial knowledge, skills and attitudes.
Our group of Business partners play an important role in delivering and enhancing this programme.

Each year our Year 6 class use business enterprise skills to establish a ‘start-up’ company and sell products before sharing their results with our Dragons. Our Dragons (business partners) then judge the companies and even buy one to represent the school. This exciting and innovative approach to the teaching and learning of business in Primary Schools has been highly commended and has impacted positively on all of our children.
