  • Pothos - Young Enterprise Team Trading at Old Spitalfields Market!

    Published 10/03/22

    On Tuesday our Year 12 Young Enterprise Team, Pothos, travelled to Old Spitalfield Market to sell 2 of our sustainable products, tote bags and bath boxes.

    We aim to be as sustainable as we can with our limited budget. We would especially like to reduce the use of plastic bags and single use plastic products in the bathroom as they are a major contributor to landfills. The day was extremely successful and we managed to sell the majority of our products, coming out of the day with a profit! We developed our sales skills, improved our entrepreneurial skills, met many new people and gained some followers on our social media networks. Scan the QR code to keep up to date with Pothos!

  • Year 10s Take on the 10X Challenge

    Published 03/03/22

    This week saw the start of the 10X Challenge for Year 10 Business Studies students. Each team of around 5 students are pledged £10 for four weeks to get their business idea off the ground. The challenge allows students to put theory into practice, develop their entrepreneurial skills and give them some experience of what it is like to run a business. We look forward to seeing what the students will come up with and how they will develop over the next four weeks!

    Mrs Harris, Head of Economics and Business

    The 10X challenge seems like a great opportunity to develop our business skills and gain some real experience as entrepreneurs. I'm excited to try it and see how well our product sells.

    Max Johnson, Year 10

    In Business Studies we are taking part in Young Enterprise's '10X Challenge'.  We have got ourselves into teams that are loaned £10 from our teachers to get the business started, along with that we have to create a team name and a logo too! So far my team has discussed ideas on whether to do a product or a service and items we can buy cheap in bulk under £10 and sell them or revamp to sell.
