Beech Hall students create thriving business

Business savvy pupils at Beech Hall School in Tytherington have put into practice the skills they have learned in the school’s new initiative, Enterprise Tuesday.

The school has implemented Enterprise Tuesday to teach the pupils the fundamentals of business in all aspects.

Each term the pupils will focus on a certain theme, this one being Eco, and rather than being taught business in the traditional way, they were asked to put it into practice.

They are ending the term on a high after making a substantial profit of £150 by selling products they have designed, created, budgeted and sold themselves for between £3 and £6 each.

To encompass the Eco theme, pupils made aprons, bug houses and fat balls for birds which have been sold to the public, and money made will go back into school resources.

James Allen: “Teaching them transferable skills in real life situations is an incredibly beneficial and effective way of giving pupils a good business acumen from an early age. They have done a fantastic job seeing the products through from beginning to end. They have taken an idea and turned it into revenue.

“Enterprise Tuesday is proving to be a very successful teaching method and the pupils are having a great time whilst learning.”
