Ryman National Enterprise Challenge Event
Year 9 students took part in the Ryman National Enterprise Challenge to learn more about entrepreneurship and to develop their key skills.
Working in groups of five, 50 teams had to create a community event or competition to encourage more girls to participate in football, ably led by a team from the Inspirational Learning Group, who delivered some brilliant, interactive activities and offered guidance throughout the morning.
Laura from the organisation commented: “I was really impressed to see confidence growing throughout the morning, as teams who were a little apprehensive at first, rose to the challenge and delivered some superb ideas and completed all the tasks we set. It was also lovely to see how supportive everyone was towards the finalists.”
Teams had to produce an initial draft poster, branding, slogan and marketing ideas, together with an advert, ready for presentation. 50 teams were then shortlisted to just four and after lunch the finalists made their presentations to another panel of judges. The four shortlisted teams were Groups five, 17, 35 and 46.
All of these teams provided a great range of ideas and were very confident in their presentations. After much deliberation and discussion, a team was chosen to represent the school at the National Finals in July at Wembley Stadium.
The winning team was Group five and is made up of:
Max Jacob, Imogen Baverstock, Michaela Rope, Alissa Scothern and Marissa Barbour – well done to all team members.
We would also like to thank The Deepings Business Club who kindly co-sponsored our event and we look forward to mentoring the team to develop their ideas and to seeing them in action later this year.
