On Wednesday 15th November, a group of Year 10 Business Studies students were taken to an event at CETL on Catcote Road.

The event, organised in line with Global Entrepreneurship Week, was organised by Hartlepool LEA  and it included students from all secondary schools in Hartlepool.

In the morning the students were taught skills and given information about business building them up for an afternoon session where, in groups of 6, they had to come up with a business idea and then pitch their business to a group of ‘real life’ Entrepreneurs.

Our students came up with a company that designs and manufactures personalised ‘Skins’ for your musical instruments and gave the company the name ‘My Musical Fit’.

Our students won the overall competition – the third successive victory in as many years.

Well done to everyone involved.
