Over the last few weeks, nine teams of students from Year 9 and 10 have been taking part in the Young Enterprise Tenner Competition, running small businesses inside and outside school to make as much profit as they can from a crisp tenner. We are now delighted to announce that one of those teams, 'Marqued', has won 'Best Team' in the 11-14 age range of the national competition.
Shubham Kulkarni, Abishayan Sivabalan and Abdullah Kassim, all in Year 9, ran a very successful company manufacturing wooden decorative signs for special occasions or for loved ones.
Shubham said: "This was a once in a lifetime opportunity and has given us an experience we will never forget. This has let me gain and expand many skills which will help further on and this has made me realize my full potential." Abdullah added: "I am extremely delighted that we have won 'Best Team' nationally. Honestly, I didn't expect for us to go this much further under the full pressure of doing this whole challenge." And Abishayan concluded: "It has been a great journey and the Tenner Competition has taught me many skills."
The three students attended an awards ceremony at the Bank of England on 8th May.
