National Enterprise Challenge
On Thursday and Friday last week [17th / 18th May] students in year 10 took part in the National Enterprise Challenge.
The National Enterprise Challenge is open to all secondary schools in the UK and gives students the opportunity to work on real life business challenges, which are set by real life businesses.
Students were divided into teams of six and tasked with coming up with a new product and back to school marketing campaign for
Rymans, the stationers. Over the two days some truly innovative products were born, ranging from multipurpose pens to pencil cases aimed at reducing exam stress before being brought to life through marketing campaigns.
The winning teams from both days were:
Y band - Jennifer Harris, Leah Raymont, Michael Thompson, Harry Wade, Ore Adeyoola and Maeziebelle Barbrooke
X band - Eleanor Mursell, Stephanie Rollison, Nathan Stone, Grace Wakefield, Caelan Bentham and Elizabeth Rands.
These two groups of students will now get to present their ideas to a panel of UK entrepreneurs at the national finals, which will take place on 04 July 2018.
Congratulations to all students who took part in the challenge and we look forward to updating you on the next stage of the challenge later in the summer term.
