National Enterprise Challenge

Categories: Curriculum

On Monday 11 and Tuesday 12 February, year 10 students participated in the National Enterprise Challenge.
This year students were tasked with coming up with an innovative way to improve female participation in grass roots football, in line with the FA’s strategy to double participation by 2020. The students worked in teams giving them the opportunity to develop skills such as leadership, delegation, communication and teamwork.
The students came up with some fantastic ideas ranging from new primary school football tournaments through to a play that would tour around UK schools to encourage more female students to take up the sport. At the end of each day each team presented to the rest of the year group.
Congratulations to the following students from the winning teams: Isobel Ayling, Keira Anderson, Isobel Allan, Joe Beaven,
Taylor Bishop, Freddie Brindle, Olivia Smith, Dylan Bullman, Harry Haneman and Callum Andrews.
The two winning teams will now get the chance to pitch their ideas at Wembley Stadium, the home of English football, to a panel of inspirational learning trust representatives, as well as representatives from the FA and the world of business.
