Business & Enterprise

Thrifwood was the only Special School in Essex to gain specialist status for Business & Enterprise.  Dame Mary Richardson, Chief Executive from HSBC Global Educational Trust, opened the Thriftwood Enterprise & Acorn Centre in 2008 and, since then, Business & Enterprise has remained a core function at Thriftwood.

The Thriftwood Enterprise & Acorn Centre is a purpose-built on-site facility that boasts:

  • a large workshop area
  • a cafĂ©, conservatory and small kitchen area
  • a training room which can be set up as a class room or used as a conference /training facility 

Both the Acorn Training Room and Workshop have interactive smart boards, the use of wireless laptops and full air conditioning.

There is ample parking and, weather permitting, a large outside area to relax and work in.
