East of England Company Programme Finalists 2018

A team of students from Ken Stimpson Community School in Peterborough won the 2018 regional title for Best Student Company in the East of England. The regional final celebrated the young people who set up and ran student companies over an academic year as part of the HSBC supported Young Enterprise Company Programme.

The team then went on to represent the East of England at the UK Company of the Year final

The regional winning team ‘Dynasty’ created books full of factual interactive activities related to the primary history curriculum.
