STEP: Stoneygate Training & Enrichment Programme

A new programme of enrichment activities known as STEP takes place one afternoon a week throughout Year 10 and 11. We want to prepare Stoneygate’s pupils for the wider world beyond their GCSEs.

STEP is based on three core areas:

Enterprise: Pupils run their own business growing and selling vegetables. Through this Enterprise pupils learn and understand the basic processes of business: initial outlays, markets, profit/loss and the importance of time.

Leadership: Pupils plan and lead a ‘mountain expedition’. This involves project leadership, decision making and communication skills – all vital tools in business.

World Perspectives: This is a dynamic course that looks at a variety of global issues from economic to politics.
