Collaborative Activities
We share many collaborative trips with our little sisters at Warwick Preparatory School and our brothers at Warwick School. In respect of Warwick School, these range from A level geography field trips to snowboarding in the U.S. to DRAMA trip in NEW YoRK.  DRAma, Music and the Combined Cadet Force are just a few of the collaborative activities on offer.

Young Enterprise

Young Enterprise is the UK’s largest business and enterprise education charity. Each year, it helps 225,000 young people learn about business and the world of work through its guiding principle “learning by doing’’.  In September eighteen of our Year 12 girls participated along with eighteen boys from Warwick School, to take part in the Company Programme Competition. This was not a business game, but a real business experience which runs over the full academic year. At the first meeting the students were divided into three companies before taking part in a team building session.

The pupils worked together through weekly board meetings and in the setting up of their real limited liability companies under the guidance of their real life business advisers. They gained practical experience of the joys and pitfalls of creating and running every aspect of a truly functioning enterprise doing everything from raising the initial share capital to designing and making their product, selling directly to customers, keeping business accounts and to winding up the firm and paying their taxes! 

In addition to the collaborative scope of their Young Enterprise companies, King’s high and Warwick students planned and hosted another collaborative event, the traditional Year 7 disco. Other activities which also supported their business efforts included a cross-dressing bench ball game, a Harry Potter competition and a rugby training session.

In March the companies are judged and interviewed over several weeks on their Trade Fair Stand, Company Report and Company Presentation competing against other schools in Central Warwickshire.   

Young Enterprise aims to help young people develop the attitudes and skills they need to succeed in the world of work. Meeting deadlines, working as a team, delivering presentations, planning, controlling finances, dealing with customers, taking responsibility, providing customer service and quality are just a few of the skills these girls and boys have learnt ......by doing.

Drama

Amongst the most popular of our collaborative activities with Warwick School are the Drama productions. Our two schools work together to produce memorable productions and benefit from the direction of both of our drama departments. 

Music

Girls join Warwick School boys in a range of music groups - Foundation Chamber Choir, Foundation Concert Band, Foundation Orchestra and Foundation Wind Orchestra
