This year our year 11 pupils have been involved in the Young Enterprise Programme, which has involved pupils setting up and launch their own business. Each team has designed and developed their own products to sell to the general public.
Throughout this programme the pupils have been involved in many events from raising funds for their start-up by running Bake sales, attending the Bedford Markets trade fair in January, and visiting Dunstable Asda superstore to learn about how international businesses operate.
The success of all the companies that took part in this enterprise programme was celebrated at The Stockwood Park Academy on Wednesday 16th March.
This included all the other schools and local community support organisations in the Bedfordshire area coming together to reward the pupil’s hard work and commitment they have shown to their businesses and to their involvement in the programme.
The Stockwood Park Academy students won the following awards:
- Best Presentation
- Best Report
- Best Innovative Business idea
- Best Problem Solving
“I am so pleased with the commitment shown by each and every pupil into the young enterprise programme, they all have worked very hard and the awards given on the night were well deserved, they all have done exceptionally well and I’m very proud of each of them, congratulations to all the teams and well done”.
