Sport and Business & Enterprise

Two features of the Academy are the specialisms in Sport and Enterprise which have been incorporated into the day-to-day life of its students. Some characteristics of the two specialisms are common to both and, in a specialist school setting, are implemented throughout the curriculum. Some of these common elements are:

  • The ability to work in teams and groups
  • Co-operating with others
  • Recognising that personal skills are different and complementary to those of others
  • Being able to negotiate
  • Making personal decisions
  • Learning that effort and endeavour gains success
  • Respecting and responding to the decisions of others
