You may or may not be aware that in the UK 85% of all business is small business. At Oxted School we work hard to develop the skill set that sets entrepreneurs apart from those other learners.

Last term we had the pleasure of hosting the Young Enterprise ‘Tenner Challenge’ to two whole year groups.  Year 7 and Year 9 just ahead of their options to see if any budding business types had not chosen it as an option from key stage 4.

On Friday 6th May the best of the rest were invited to present their products and services on stalls before pitching their wits in a Dragons Den style arena which included SamGiymah the local Conservative MP, Rachel Watkyn Founder and MD of Tiny Box and the Deputy Head of Oxted School Nick O Flynn. The images below show how much the learners enjoyed the experience and how impressive their products actually were.  They certainly demonstrated the schools motto above in the way they applied themselves to this extra curricular challenge as well as developing their powerful learner characteristic, Collaboration, Resilience, Creativity, Resilient, Resourceful and Reflective on their way.

Well done Infinity and Beyond for scooping the main award.  A taster of the stalls can be seen below followed by some of the teams that made the Oxted School final.
Certificates and badges will be handed out in assembly to all those who made it to the final.  See below.

Sadly we cant show the video of Candy Floss Heaven until we get permission from the folks of the team at home.

And the winner was...
