The National Enterprise Challenge 2019

Students in Shells have taken part in The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge today, developing their ideas and business acumen.

Students were split into 26 teams and spent the day creating, branding and marketing a new mascot before nine teams were selected to present their ideas to a judging panel.

The winning team was team nine: Ruby the Rhino. The winners will now represent the school at the National Finals that will be held at Wembley Arena in July. Before then they will be working hard to prepare for the finals, with more than 1,500 people expected at this year’s event, with celebrities and business leaders due to attend. Challenge Ambassador, Ryman Chairman and former TV Dragon, Theo Paphitis will also be in attendance.
