IMG 5592webCongratulations to our Year 10 Business Studies students who impressed The Peter Jones Foundation with their business plans to secure a loan of £536 to run a business in Conisborough College as part of the 'Tycoon in Schools' competition.

Our budding Young Year 10 Tycoons have set up two businesses 'Khalz Customization' provides custom made t-shirts and 'UNAccessories' sells general accessories and stationery.



"I am thrilled that Conisborough College in Catford is taking part in this year's Tycoon in Schools competition which provides school children across the country with their first taste of enterprise. I am very excited to see the innovative and creative business ideas come to fruition and wish all students participating from Conisborough College the very best of luck. Watch this space – we could have the next global business tycoon in the making!" - Peter Jones CBE

"We are incredibly proud of the entrepreneurial spirit shown by our students in coming up with their business ideas for the Tycoon in Schools competition. Through this process, the students have developed their skills and understanding of the fundamentals of enterprise.
Inspiring and educating young people about business from an early age is really important to help them develop the confidence to broaden their horizons. Working with a well-known entrepreneur like Peter Jones is an excellent way to engage young people in business."  - Mrs Issifu (Head of Business Studies)

"It is an exciting experience and we are all enjoying it. This has taught us that running a business needs 100% effort and commitment, however, there are great rewards, we have already made over £100 profit and hope to increase profits in the coming weeks. This project comes with many opportunities to develop our skills which will appeal to future employers" - Student Comment
