Westborough High reached the finals of the prestigious annual Ryman National Enterprise Challenge, the UK’s largest school’s enterprise education competition.
It was another successful event for the students as they finished National Enterprise Challenge runners-up and their teacher Lukman Patel was awarded the coveted Most Enterprising Teacher 2018.
The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge is part of the Inspirational Learning Group, whose aim is to provide innovative and enterprising off-timetable events for schools, colleges and universities; engaging, inspiring and motivating students to be the best they can be.
The challenge attracted more than 450 schools and 200,000 students since its first challenge was launched back in 2013.
In Key Stage 3, students have been designing a new activity for KidZania’s Indoor City at the Westfield Shopping Centre in Shepherd’s Bush, London.
The activity included creating a You Tube advert and considering how many Kidzos (Kidzania’s official currency) it would cost.
Westborough High School competed against more than 283 teams in this year’s challenge.
The Westborough team joined students from 160 schools at the finals at The International Centre, Telford.
Diversity’s Perri Kiely and Jordan Banjo hosted the exciting finals event.
The schools came together to compete against each other, each pitching the ideas they’ve worked hard on to create.
Mr Patel, Head of Enterprise at Westborough, said: “It was a breath-taking event and our pupils were outstanding on the day to finish second nationally.
“Really proud and honoured to have been awarded the Most Enterprising Teacher 2018.”
