St Peter's 13-18
A group of enterprising young pupils from St Peter's School, York, have qualified for the European final of the Young Enterprise Company of the Year awards.
The group of Lower Sixth pupils embarked on their Young Enterprise journey with a mission statement of ‘bringing generations together. The business is based on the managing director’s (Lucys) lockdown experience of cooking over video call with her grandma who is living with dementia.
Since then they have raised a staggering £1200 in total revenue, which will be donated to Alzheimer’s Society.
The young entrepreneurs have gained some remarkable achievements. The group won the North Yorkshire company of the year, were named North East regional company of the year, came third place in the UK company of the year and won the Innovation & Technology award.
The group have also taken part in several podcasts, radio and TV interviews.
Mr Shread, who co-ordinates the Young Enterprise group, said: "I am most proud of the confidence the whole group have gained. I’ve seen real growth and entrepreneurial spirit, I have been really impressed. I think they will own or run a company themselves in the future."
Mr Jeremy Walker, Head Master of St Peter's School, said: "Following their great success in the UK Finals, we all wish our fantastic team good luck in the European Finals. They have done a brilliant job with their company and I am very proud of all they are achieving."
The group has qualified for the European company of the year, which you can vote for here! (Their company is the blue heart logo in a frying pan)
