Greenfield Students Mean Business

Students from Greenfield Community College have been taking business seriously showing innovative and entrepreneurial skills.  The students are taking part in the (FBM) Future Business Magnates competition for schools, showcasing their business sense and working together as a strong team.

Working alongside Mrs Randall, Subject Specialist in Maths and House Leader, this year students are invited to come up with business ideas that will ‘protect the planet’.  A group of Year 8 students enjoyed their third challenge in the process recently, ‘Designing a Business Plan’, at Ushaw College. The business initiative has provided a valuable opportunity for students to work together and with external partners, learning new skills and preparing them for careers in the future. 

Future Business Magnates is a business enterprise competition for schools and helps introduce students to the basics of starting and running a business and inspires confidence and resilience, working in conjunction with local businesses.

The FBM team at Greenfield are looking forward to future challenges in the competition and to developing their innovative business idea.  Greenfield Community College are committed to supporting students in extended learning opportunities such as FBM where they can achieve success through qualities supported and encouraged by staff including collaboration, responsibility, resilience, reflection and creativity.  We wish the young entrepreneurs every success in the future.
