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:
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.
