Student Business Competition

On Wednesday 15 May, Year 10 GCSE Business students participated in the inaugural Student Business Competition, set up for Year 12 students in West Berkshire by local business people.  

As part of their mission to reduce the use of single use plastic water bottles in school, the team set up a small business called HYDReau  to sell reusable stainless steel ones at affordable prices. Sourcing, selling and marketing their bottles helped the team develop key business and social skills including leadership and teamwork.

At the final, the team delivered a confident, composed and well timed presentation in front of other teams, parents and judges. Despite being two years younger and entering the competition after their Year 12 opponents the team triumphed to win "Best Presentation Award".
