Y10 Enterprise students to go to Buckingham Palace!

Y10 Enterprise students make the final of the Peter Jones Foundation Tycoon in Schools enterprise competition.

Our Year 10 Enterprise team - TAIBO (Ellie Lloyd, Monika Dent, Emma Davies and Kierra D'Sanchez) - have made it to the final of the Tycoon in Schools enterprise competition which will take place at Buckingham Palace next week (7th May).

389 teams entered the competition and only 8 have made the final. The Ambitious Innovative Beauty Organisation (TAIBO) made handmade, stylish hair scrunchies from second-hand clothes that were purchased from a number of local charity shops around Buxton. The team made a significant profit but it was their superb entrepreneurial skills that got them to the final. 

The team would like to thank Fairhome Property Group PLC for their sponsorship of the travel to Buckingham Palace next week. 

Good luck TAIBO - we are so proud of you.

Results to follow!!!
