Business and Enterprise Specialism

Aylsham High School was the first school in Norfolk to gain Business and Enterprise status and was successfully redesignated  in 2008

We believe that our Business and Enterprise specialism fuels and enables enterprising minds to flourish. It is at the heart of all of our work and within our ethos and culture. 

Our work in Business and Enterprise is nationally recognised.

Here is a sample of some of our Business and Enterprise work:

  • The highly effective specialist subject areas of Maths, ICT and Business Studies all of which gain excellent GCSE results.
  • Our Young Chamber is a group of the most committed and enterprising students. We are hugely proud of their achievements. www.ahs-yc.co.uk
  • Our students in the Premier League Enterprise Challenge were amazing
  • National recognition for our work with students on developing Financial Capability.
  • Extensive collaborative projects with our cluster primary schools again many of which are nationally recognised and celebrated. 
  • Consistent focus on enterprise skills with employers for the future workforce. We employ a member of staff to develop work based opportunities for our students with employers.
  • Enterprise is at the heart of our Rewards System – we deal and negotiate credits.
  • We provide a wide range of courses and support sessions for parents/ carers to encourage them to support their child’s learning.
  • We co-ordinate a Family Learning Programme that encourages family members to enjoy learning together and work especially hard to encourage those families who may be reluctant to come into school.
  • We work very closely with a range of adult learning providers to encourage provision that is based around the needs of local learners
  • We work very collaboratively with an extensive range of partners to encourage and influence strategies that support families within our cluster area.
