Entrepreneurial Spirit

Redefining what a school can be

We aim to redefine what education can offer tomorrow’s high-fliers. The environment we have developed goes beyond the classroom to give students an introduction to the fast-moving world of adulthood that they will inherit. 

Business Inspired Education

By developing the most sought-after skills from the world of business, we instil in our students the confidence to challenge the norms and become the change makers of tomorrow. We want to ensure that our students understand what they can achieve and introduce them to skills and ways of thinking that they would not normally encounter until well into their university studies.

The Business Incubator Challenge

A big event in our calendar is our annual Incubator Challenge, an inter-school competition where students can pitch their unique business ideas to experts from our Creative Commerce Board.

Previous entries include a sustainable energy device, an edible coffee cup and smart tech home security. The 2023 winning idea was a plastic free food delivery service.


My winning idea is BrandFit, a brand identifying clothing app. In future, I’ll be working towards getting more collaborators and making my business a reality.”

Business Masterclasses

Learn about different aspects of commerce and what it is like to work in a range of professions through masterclasses delivered by professionals, business leaders and entrepreneurs – either on campus or at businesses in London. Recent masterclass examples include talks from tech start-ups, visits to the Bank of England, workshops from the Institute of Chartered Accountants and a seminar from leading education charity, United World Schools.

The Creative Commerce Board

The Creative Commerce Board (CCB) is an innovative collaboration between Guildhouse School and industry experts to create opportunities beyond the classroom that inspire students to be creative, develop their intuition, and make a positive contribution to society in the future. The Board organises events, including seminars, lectures and business visits, aimed at providing students with unique, real-world insights into international business and enterprise.
