Sixth Form Young Enterprise Students celebrated their success as double award-winning business women, following their triumph at the Young Enterprise South East Berkshire Area Finals on Thursday 18th March.
The Luckley Company, Fusion, consisting of 22 students won the South East Berkshire Area Cup for Best Company and another cup for Best Company Report. Luckley was competing against other schools such as Ranelagh and St George's.
The company decide to design two products, both celebrating the merger of Luckley and Oakfield Schools 50 years ago; a recipe book created by contributions from the school community and personalised hooded sweatshirts.
The cups were awarded by Mary Flavelle, a successful Berkshire entrepreneur, who was chair of the judging panel. Fusion was praised by Mary for their financial acumen. She explained that in the current financial climate it was imperative that firms not only looked at the needs of their specific market, but kept an eye on their costs too, and the judges had been very impressed that Fusion had effective systems in place to monitor profit margins, budgets and costs.
Mrs Linda Stephens, Head of Business Studies commented, ‘The students have worked exceptionally hard to launch and produce two products. Meeting the initial deadline was extremely onerous, with a series of short timescales. Managing this project along side their studies and other commitments is testament to their excellent team work and time management. We are delighted with their success.’
