EDGE Concourse Marketplace

EDGE Concourse Marketplace

On Wednesday lunchtime, the Concourse was buzzing with entrepreneurial excitement as the second EDGE Marketplace event took place. After the success of the first market in November, there was a great deal of anticipation amongst the pupils!

The Edge programme in Third Year is a ten-week course during which our pupils learn the basics of business planning and creation from our resident experts in the Business and Economics department. Working in teams, they take the theory learnt in class to create and market a business using a modest amount of seed capital. This time round we saw stalls selling slushies, innovative pencil cases, jewellery and international sweet brands.

It was once again amazing to see the energy and excitement of both sellers and their potential buyers. The pupil businesses have a chance to reflect on their efforts post-event and consider if and how they might develop their ideas. Any profits will be donated to charity at the end of the year once the full cohort of intrepid entrepreneurs have had their chance to share their ideas with the community.
