‘You’re hired’ Lord Sugar tells students
A group of six year nine students from Brighouse High School took part in the national enterprise challenge finals in London.
The challenge involved the group creating and designing a marketing mix for a product which revolved around the theme of ‘Brand Britain’.
The team comprising of Jordan Boam, Jack Hopkins, Connor Brown, Laura Copley, Amy Leah and Thea Brooman, presented their ‘Fest Rest’ idea, a chair, lounger and bench for use at a music festival.
Brighouse High competed against 60 other schools from around the country and they had to pitch their idea to a panel of judges.
Gill Lister from the school said the team delivered an excellent presentation and were one of three teams chosen to go through to the final and pitch their idea to a panel of celebrity judges including Claire Young, runner up of The Apprentice.
“Again, our students delivered an outstanding performance but unfortunately were not the final overall winners.
“At the end of the day, they had the opportunity to meet with Lord Alan Sugar and take part in a question and answer session.”
