Business and Enterprise

The Appleton School was designated as a Business and Enterprise College in September 2003.

As a Specialist Business & Enterprise College we aim to deliver high quality innovative learning opportunities for all our students.  Business & Enterprise is embedded across our curriculum, ensuring that the ethos of being enterprising is delivered consistently throughout each subject area.  Students are encouraged to develop enterprise skills during lessons and through extra curricular activities. 

We strongly believe that by developing enterprise skills such as teamwork, communication, problem solving, innovation and many more, students will be better prepared for the constantly changing world of work.
