The Y7, Y8 and Y9 Christmas Enterprise markets were as successful and as busy as ever this year. We had a variety of creative stalls selling; fridge magnets, gift tags, friendship bracelets, origami and homemade gift wrapped biscuits and sweets. Congratulations to all the students who took part, you all worked very hard to produce some amazing, original and good quality products. The winner for the best group and displaying the most entrepreneurial skills will be announced after Christmas.
A huge congratulations to the Year 12 Mock Trial Team.

The 2018 Ryman National Enterprise Challenge final was held at The International Centre, Telford on Wednesday 4th July. The event saw the winning teams from over 150 schools come together to compete against each other. High street retailer and stationery giant, Ryman set students the task of creating a new stationary product for the Back to School campaign. The students had to convince the panel that their product would increase revenue and brand awareness. Ready to Rule from 9-5 consisted of Ella, Milly, Mimi, Rose, Mboje, Florrie who represented the school and did themselves and the school proud. The pitch was word perfect and Ella and Mimi performed a fabulous rap as part of their advertising campaign.
The students had a good day as the event was hosted by Diversity dance group – Jordan and Perry. Theo Paphitis headed up the judging panel and hosted a Q&A with the students – “Be inspired by everything around you, use everything as inspiration”.
Well done to Ella, Milly, Mimi, Rose, Mboje, Florrie – we have definitely got some budding entrepreneurs within the school.
