Y6 Enterprise Challenge

Enterprise Challenge began in Bowdon Church School in 2012 and is one of the highlights of the children’s time here in BCS.  Over a 6 week period, the children in Year 6 take part in a series of workshops on core business and life skills; pitch ideas to 'Business Angels' for real money; advertise, produce and fulfil orders; organise and run a business fair for pupils, family, friends and the local community.  Not only does this bring their learning in primary school to life, giving every aspect of the curriculum real context, but it also instils important skills such as confidence, resilience, creativity and teamwork, whilst preparing them for the transition to secondary school.

BCS was short-listed for the TES Enterprise and Community Award in 2014 for Enterprise Challenge.
