The Thriftwood School


United Kingdom

Vision or plan for entrepreneurship education

Establish a vision for enterprise across the whole school which is focused on continuing improvement, success and high standards of achievement for all and where preparing students for the next stages in their lives is at the heart of all activity.

Resources to encourage and support entrepreneurship education

We run a Team Programme for year 11 students through Young Enterprise.

We have a dedicated Business and Enterprise Centre, which hosts a cafe, run by the students and a small shop area, where the students sell their products to visitors.


Focus on student centred learning, integration in different subjects

Senior school cover enterprise throughout the curriculum, numeracy, literacy and ICT skills. The main one is communication and life skills. We rely heavily on volunteers to come in to help with the practical activities
