It was with great pleasure for Mr Twigger and I to take eight Year 10 BTEC Business Students to the 'Real Business Challenge' final. To put this achievement into context, 9000 students took part in the national competition so it was a great achievement to reach the top ten in the London final.

The students were introduced to their Coca Cola employee mentor for the day and were set a challenge to ‘raise awareness and donations for the athletes taking part in the Special Olympics 2015’. Teachers were also formed into two groups and did the challenge at the same time.

The students were set strict deadlines to produce an app for a smart phone using Como App Maker, a bus stop billboard, cost plan for a fund raising event with a budget of £25,000 and a promotional campaign.
