Young Enterprise

Young Enterprise is the flagship activity for girls seeking a business experience and provides an enrichment opportunity for students from every subject discipline. Girls apply for Director roles and are supported through weekly meetings with a Business Advisor and their Lead Teacher.

The team operates as a ‘real world’ business, with an HSBC business bank account, the issuing of shares and a formal structure of the team and defined roles. A product is developed and sold to generate both profit and business growth. Sales opportunities utilised by the team include internal events such as the Sheffield High PTA annual fair and external events such as Kelham Island Victorian Christmas Market and trade shows at the Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield and the White Rose Shopping Centre in Leeds.

We regularly achieve considerable success in the competition, reaching the national finals in 2015 and being runners up in the county finals in 2016.
