How we run Enterprise
St Matthew Academy leads, others follow....
At the end of each term, St Matthew Academy students come away from the normal subject or phase based timetable to participate in Enterprise and Challenge Weeks. Students and staff participate in a wide range of enterprise related activities loosely based around a common theme – which differs each term.
Such has been the outstanding success of our Enterprise and Challenge Weeks that a multitude of top level entrepreneurs, ‘Blue-Chip’ companies, political and educational leaders and professional and business people from around the United Kingdom and beyond have descended upon St Matthew Academy.
Our unique all-through enterprise philosophy from 4-16 has been used as a benchmark and a series of Case Studies and DVD’s have been commissioned so that what we have created can be followed nation-wide.
A thematic approach to Enterprise excellence
Each Enterprise and Challenge Week is given a theme and all organisations and activities based on a different aspect of that theme pull together as a massive ‘jigsaw puzzle’ and celebration of all that is good in enterprise education. Read more about past themes and projects
