I was very fortunate to be invited to the above launch which was attended by this years sponsor and famous entrepreneur Theo Paphitis.
It was a very exciting night with speeches from executives from Ryman (sponsors), OCR, Staffordshire University, Gandys, and Theo himself. Last year we had two Year 9 teams representing the academy at the final which was attended by Alan Sugar.
This year we wish our Year 9’s luck as they will go head to head for a place in the final where they will also meet Theo! This event will take place in the Academy in February and will be organised by our Year 13 Business students as part of their BTEC National Diploma.
