An enterprising group of students has come up with business ideas which they think would improve Corby town centre.
The group of Year 7, 8 and 9 students were challenged to research the town centre and identify gaps in the market there.
The students worked on the project after school during Session 4 and presented their findings to a local business leader in front of our staff.
Vice Principal Ruth Hurcombe said: “Our students have been coming up with proposals for Corby town centre and developing their numeracy and literacy skills at the same time.
“The students were challenged to identify a gap in the market in Corby town centre and put forward a proposal for a business which would fill it.
“They presented their findings to Shane Cousins who is a local business leader and one of our school governors.
“The students received excellent feedback on their presentation and the winning business ideas were two separate proposals for the introduction of a burger bar restaurant chain and a new pet shop.
“I would like to congratulate all the students who took part. They worked very hard on their presentations.
“I would also like to thank our staff who supported the students.”
