Developed in partnership with the Sands Centre for Entrepreneurial Leadership in the United States, the Entrepreneurial Leadership programme priorities the development of four key traits that comprise the entrepreneurial mindset:
Creative problem solving
Equipped with this mindset, students take on interesting challenges that connect with their passions and graduate with a competitive advantage. To instil this mindset in every student, the Entrepreneurial Leadership programme is integrated into the Key Stage 3 experience. Project-based challenges in the classroom provide an opportunity for students to build this way of thinking while practising entrepreneurial skills in the areas of business, design, and technology.
Year 7 Programme
Students support entrepreneurs around the world in partnership with Kiva - a microfinancing company. They design, price and sell handmade products within their school community to generate funds.
Students learn the power of stories as they deliver messages through audio and visual channels. They assume the role of a fictional social media persona to explore the production of podcasts and YouTube videos.
Adventures in New Media
Students embrace the mantra of “concept to creation” in this design course. They use Adobe Illustrator, soldering irons, laser cutters, and microcontrollers to build and program a dancing robot and conductive keyboard.
