Reading Girls' School

Business & Enterprise Status

Our Business & Enterprise Visionvisa
Our goal at Reading Girls' School is to educate our students to become confident, financially mature and self-sufficient young women who can progress through to adulthood able to take advantage of any opportunity that comes their way.
 
Enterprise - a definition
The ability to be innovative, to be creative, to take risks and to manage them, to have a can-do attitude and the drive to make ideas happen
 
Enterprise capability is supported by:
  • Financial capability – the ability to manage one’s own finances and to become questioning and informed consumers of financial services
  • Business and economic understanding – the ability to understand the business context and make informed choices between alternative uses of scarce resources
  • Enterprising Teaching & Learning - an enterprising approach to teaching and learning encourages all students to learn and develop in a way that meets their needs. It enables them to develop enterprising skills, attitudes and creative approaches right across the curriculum.
Teachers endeavour to use work-based contexts and to work with employers to engage students in learning and raise attainment.
 
Our Key Principles are:
  • The school to be a centre of excellence through:
    • Rich provision
    • High take-up of courses
    • Effective and innovative teaching
    • Improved outcomes
  • Whole-school improvement with an ethos of continual improvement and success
  • Working with partner schools to improve outcomes for young people
  • Working with community groups to support community cohesion, family learning and extended services
