Walton High’s Year 11 Young Enterprise team has won the ‘Overall Best Company’ award and a host of other awards for the fifth consecutive year at the Milton Keynes finals. The team is now through to the regional finals on 10 May in High Wycombe.
Sixteen students from the Walton High’s Walnut Tree campus designed and produced a book about mental health, targeted at primary school aged children. The team carried out market research including a focus group to identify a gap in the market and used ideas gleaned from Year 7 students as input for their final product. Other awards won by the team included best company report and runner up for best presentation. Centre lead, Charlotte East commented “to win five years in a row is an amazing achievement and a reflection of all the hard work that students have put this year and in previous years”.
In total three teams were entered for this year’s finals. Walton High’s Year 12 team won the award for ‘best customer service’ whilst the Brooklands Year 11 Team won the runners up prize for ‘best trade stand’. Congratulations to all students and centre leads who took part in this year’s competition.
