Young Enterprise

Young Enterprise is a group of students from Year12, who are selected to form and run a business. They are appointed roles within the business, create a business plan and develop the business and execute their business model throughout the year. The group aims to enrich academic learning and empowers students to develop the confidence, ability and ambition they need to succeed in life and work. Experiencing the highs and lows of the business world and learning valuable lessons for when they leave their academic journey.

This year's young enterprise team has taken on the task to create sustainable tote bags that raise awareness of ecological issues and sustainability, focusing on our relationships with local business (such as working with the printery, on mutely plain). 

Our fundraising has started off with a bang, with 2 bake sales in the Newman and our thrift week at the end of November (where we sold donated clothes, books and handmade, crotched key chains). Selling donated clothes meant we could encourage students at the school to recycle and buy 2nd hand keeping our sustainable image alive. We are also going to be selling raffle tickets in the upcoming weeks for our Christmas raffle, which is a collection of prizes from local businesses in Plymouth and Cornwall. 

We are very excited to develop our project and encourage everyone to shop local and support the environment. If you would like to learn more about young enterprise, follow us on Instagram @tote.lly_phsg , or find our notice board in the sixth form common room.
