The Collyer’s Young Enterprise team did brilliantly in the Area Finals, picking up several prizes, including: ‘Runner Up Best Company’ and ‘Best Product’. Collyer’s Nathaniel Kennedy was delighted to win the ‘Young Achiever’ award. This is on top of the prizes previously awarded for Best Stand and Best Business Plan.
Collyer’s Employability Co-ordinator, Lucy Hargreaves, said: “Everyone was obviously disappointed, but it’s still an amazing achievement to have won so many awards. The group have been absolutely wonderful, superbly supported by Nick Broom and Dominic Wakefield, who we are massively grateful to for their motivation and support.
“The overall winners of Best Company were the students from Hurst, so they will now go forward into the Regional Finals. We wish them every success!”
Although the Collyer’s students are now out of the competition, they will continue with the meetings, support and guidance, as they will keep their company running until their exams begin in May.
Deputy Principal, Steve Martell, said: “The Collyer’s community could not be prouder of this talented, creative and hard-working team. Well done everyone!”
