The Appleton School, Benfleet have approached us again this year to assist their pupils with entering the Young Enterprise Website Competition. We really smashed it last year helping five groups of pupils to enter and then taking the top two spots in the competition. Artis won the runner up for Best Website and Outside the Box won the Overall Best Website. Appleton reported that their teams “were over the moon“.
Last year, we supported the school throughout the competition visiting the school most weeks for a lunchtime website building session. Sometimes there was two of us and we spent a lot of timing sorting out some technical issues with the website setup, offering suggestions and supporting the teams. It was good fun interacting and with the pupils and working closely with Julie who was The Appleton School co-coordinator. The achievements of the pupils in picking up how to run a business and working with an actual local business will.
