Team Qualify for Regional Finals of Real Business Challenge
Six Year 10 students from Stamford School, forming the team CAPS, have made it through to the regional finals of the Real Business Challenge (RBC) which take place in February.
The RBC is for students in Year 9-10 and challenges pupils to tackle a business task set by Coca-Cola Enterprises. Students from various schools enter as teams and pitch their business ideas against other schools on a regional and national level.
Back in November, the ‘in school’ first round took place where 45 Stamford School Year 10 boys took part, forming seven teams who each had to present their business ideas. After the top two teams had to present for a second time in front of the headmaster for final judging, CAPS were crowned the victors.
The CAPS team consisting of; Toby Rickett, Ethan Archer, Thomas Andrews, Edward Gallacher, Charlie Goldspink, Sam Brunswick, have since had their presentation judged against other local schools’ presentations before it has been decided that they have made it through to the regional finals in February.
Teacher of Business Studies and Economics at Stamford School, Amy Halliday, said: “The students did a fantastic job, represented Stamford School brilliantly and should be proud of what they all achieved.”
