Gifted and Talented day

Our Young Entrepreneurs show their Skills!

Ever felt like you could impress in the Dragons’ Den? Six of our year six children had the chance to do just
that, as they took part in the first Young Entrepreneurs’ Challenge event on Wednesday 12th October and visited the University of Sheffield for the day, where they were taught various business skills by a local entrepreneur. The children were delighted to have the opportunity to see the University's new Diamond building, which is an amazing place to study.

Challenged to come up with their own idea for a new company, they decided on


Chore Challenge, an app that helps parents encourage their
children to tidy their rooms and wash the dishes.

The children gave a fantastic pitch and really
impressed the judges, who included Lee Strafford, the former Chairman of Sheffield Wednesday.

The judges were particularly impressed with the quality of all of the children’s
pitches. Janet Grant, a judge and mentor from the University of Sheffield’s Enterprise Zone, praised the pupils’ presentation skills, which she said rivalled those of undergraduate students.
