Young Enterprise 2023

Published 23 May 2023

Our two Young Enterprise teams, Genesis and Aeternum, participated in the Young Enterprise final on 11 May at Oracle, Thames Valley Business Park, Reading.

This event is the culmination of all the work that students have put into the program since September. Students set up an exhibition stand, which was visited by a team of judges, and they were questioned on their business activity, the processes they followed and the skills they have developed as a Young Enterprise participant. Each competing team gave a short presentation, detailing their business story. Judges then selected winning teams in areas such as enterprise, business planning and organisation and management.

Our Young Enterprise team did an amazing job on Thursday evening. They were very smart and professional in their appearance, the trade stands looked great, they spoke to the judges with enthusiasm and delivered a very polished presentation. The teams were awarded with participation certificates for getting to this stage, as many student companies fail in the early days of the program. Although we did not come away with any specific prizes this year, the students were a credit to the school. We are the only school in West Berkshire participating in Young Enterprise. The students who took part on the evening are: Taylor Brereton, Cameron Cogan, Harriett Dawes, Max Humphrey, Peace Oke, Gemma Porter, Mohammed Shaikh, Sarah Viljoen-Kadziya and Jimi White
