Our team shines at the Rymans National Enterprise Challenge
Congratulations to our team of six year 10 learners (Cory, Emily, Niamh, Charlie, Mollie and Josh) who got through to the final 5 out of 120 teams at the Ryman National Enterprise Finals last week at Telford International Centre.
The learners delivered a fantastic pitch for their product called Smart Box. The panel of judges, including Thoe Paphitis from Dragon’s Den, were hugely impressed by the innovative stationery mail order delivery system aimed at GCSE students. The final pitch was delivered in front of an audience of 1,400 school children, teachers and business representatives.
Perri Kiely and Jordan Banjo from the dance group Diversity hosted the event in an impressive stadium style venue.
Cory said, “We were amazed that we got this far in the completion, but when we reached the final 5 we couldn’t believe it. It was really frightening having to perform in front of so many people especially since I had to sing a rap!”
It really is an amazing achievement to get this far in a national competition and we are very proud of our talented and innovative learners who are sure to go far in the world of business.
