Many of our Year 8 students are working hard on the Sheffield schools' enterprise competition; Big Challenge 11 which runs until January.
Students have to set up a company to sell their products. They are encouraged to look at all elements of having a business including marketing, finance and production. This is an invaluable experience as students come across exactly the same problems that happen in the real world of enterprise and it is all done in their spare time.
In January students can choose to write up a final report which will be judged by a panel of Sheffield business people. The overall prize is an all-expenses paid trip to somewhere in the world (destination yet to be revealed!) So far there has been a "Flying Start" competition and we are delighted that our HAH Jewellery were highly commended with a £25 prize and an opportunity to show and sell their beautiful handmade jewellery. They also showed how professional they were when they were interviewed on stage about their business by the organisers.
