Pioneer House High School
Pioneer House High School in Northern Moor, Manchester is a school for children with significant learning difficulties. It welcomed its first students in September 2016 and started working with Enabling Enterprise in September 2017. Previously, the whole school took part in the ‘Operation: Moonbase’ Challenge Day and a lucky few students also had the opportunity to apply their essential skills outside the school context as they visited the Department of Education. Recently, the whole school decided to take on another stretching challenge with gusto, this time honing in on Teamwork and Creativity.
Future Transport
Over the course of the day, students had to work together in mixed teams to research, design, build and test a new form of transport for the future. They were set the challenge from Ronnie the Robot who had travelled back in time to explain what the world would be like many years in the future. Teams needed to be creative to solve problems and stay positive through a series of fast-paced challenges designed to stretch their essential skills. At the end of the day, students celebrated each other's designs and shared their super imaginative ideas in front of their teachers and their peers.

Students, Year 8, 9 and 10
I’ve been having lots of fun. I’ve shared my ideas and we’ve voted, and I’ve even had to compromise, but our vehicle will still be really good!
Student, Year 7
They've all been very busy: they absolutely love being hands on and creating, it's really good!
