Young Enterprise - Team Meadow

 Young Enterprise – Team Programme

A group of students from the 6th form took part in a programme aimed at enabling young people to develop the knowledge and attitudes they need to succeed in the work place and in business. It built on eight key skills:

  • Communication
  • Confidence
  • Financial Capability
  • Initiative
  • Organisation
  • Problem-solving
  • Teamwork
  • Resilience


The students designed a logo for their company and named it Team Meadow. They decided to make and sell a variety of goods, in addition to offering different services. These included car washing, a weekly tuck shop, honesty boxes for staff and a team of social workers at Canterbury Hospital and running a Valentine’s disco for secondary and 6th form pupils.

The students made and designed jewellery which Christine and Jay sold at the Dickens Fair in Rochester.  Both students also attended the Farmers’ Market in Aylesford to raffle Easter baskets the students had made. Many thanks go to parents for attending these events. Together they made a formidable sales team, with the combined events earning the students nearly £300.

In addition to this, when weather permitted, students could be found washing cars in the school carpark.

Team Meadow won 2nd prize in the ‘Best Presentation’ category in a national Young Enterprise competition. 

Christine won the Sir John Moore’s Achievement award for the South East. This takes the form of £100 cheque and is awarded annually to the pupil who has shown the most improvement through their participation in the Team Programme in each region of England and Wales.

Thank you to everyone who bought shares or purchased goods students made. Your support has been greatly appreciated. Students have learnt a lot, had creative fun along the way and, importantly for a business group, made a profit!
