Young Enterprise is a scheme whereby during the course of a school year, girls create a product and have opportunities to sell it around the county. Volunteers with a wealth of knowledge in running businesses also advise them, making the experience more authentic. Girls enjoy participating in Young Enterprise, and we have found from experience, that companies, when run effectively, can be extremely successful. For example, one of the groups last year, 'Alpha', received awards for best product and best overall company at the Young Enterprise stall at the Harpenden Christmas Fair and for 'Best Company Report' at the Young Enterprise competition held at Rothamsted Conference Centre.
Young Enterprise is also an integral part of school life, even for the younger students, with groups not only developing products for sale, but also putting on events such as movie nights. The girls really enjoy this and always look forward to the next event with great anticipation.
