In Year 9, students take part in an 'Enterprise Week'. The event is usually organised by Northamptonshire Young Enterprise, with representatives from local businesses coming together to inspire them through activities and discussions simulating the world of work. Students are set a challenge and work together in teams, utilising skills such as problem solving, communication and team working.
From Year 10 to Year 13, there are opportunities to take part in enrichment activities which relate to specific subject areas. For example in 2015, Politics and History students went to Washington and New York.
