National Enterprise Challenge
On Wednesday 29th June, 6 year 10 students took part in the grand finals of the Ryman National Enterprise Challenge, which was held at Doncaster racecourse. Students Joshua Greengrow, Sonny Wheeler, Luke Simpson, Simon Elson, Jack McLaughlin and Zak Woodcock represented the school in the nationwide challenge.
Since the launch in 2013, the challenge has been delivered to over 100,000 young people from over 200 schools from across the UK. The programme has received high profile support from entrepreneurs including Theo Paphitis and Lord Sugar.
The 2016 challenge tasked students with creating the ultimate school-based business, and our Year 10 students’ business idea was based around rewarding students, particularly focusing on how technology can be used more to support the business model.
Popular youth television personalities Dick & Dom hosted the Grand Finals and "Eddie the Eagle" (Edwards) was also present as a guest of honour. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the day and relished the opportunity to pitch their idea to some of the most successful business people in Britain!
