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”.

ye20181Walton High’s Young enterprise group has won the Milton Keynes local competition for the third year running!  Certificates were awarded for the best overall product as well as winning a number of other award categories.

Initially, thirteen Year 11 students registered their company in September 2017. After conducting market research, students settled on a product called the ‘U Card’. The purpose of the card is to make a positive impact on people’s lives by solving daily challenges and reminding people about important dates. The ‘U’ card stands for ‘help u’, ‘remind u’ and ‘made for u’. Three variations of the U card were developed: a car card for vehicle owners with MOT and insurance dates, a lost person card to keep young children and the elderly safe and thirdly, a medical card for people with rare medical conditions.

Students have also held meetings with leading charities such as Age UK and Macintyre who were interested in the products. Students Maisie Cherry and Amy Cox commented that, “our proudest achievement was winning overall best company at the Milton Keynes finals which has allowed us to advance through to the County finals on 4 May. We are also very grateful to Miss East who has helped and guided us in the creation of our business and for making it a once in a lifetime experience!”
