Students at King’s Oak Academy raised £981.88 during their Enterprise Week, which has been donated to the Jesse May Trust.
The Academy stages an Enterprise Week every year. This is a whole-school approach to raising awareness of enterprise and employability skills and students from Years 7-10 are involved.
In tutor groups, students held different activities during the week using their break/lunch times. This included bake sales, competitions, a photo booth, film club, BBQ, car washing and quick portraits.
Chemin Alam-Lloyd, Teacher of Business and Enterprise, said: “It was fantastic to see a buzz around the school, watching students enthusiastically work in teams, build confidence and develop their enterprise and employability skills, whilst raising money for an excellent cause.”
