GCHQ Young Enterprise Competition 2018
Another successful year for Archway after coming a respectable 2nd at this year's GCHQ Young Enterprise Competition.
I was incredibly proud of the team who consisted of Ashleigh, Sam, Marlyse and Charlotte who are all Y9 students -personally I think the team deserved to come 1st but then I am a bit biased! The competition involved teams presenting a business idea to a panel of GCHQ managers.
Archway team's idea was based on improving the app ShowMyHomework, and they came up with a product called MarkZing whereby students gained rewards (or Zing) for completing homework to a set standard and in a timely manner. The four students were great ambassadors for Archway at the final and delivered a very informative presentation - huge well done to Ashleigh, Sam, Marlyse and Charlotte for coming 2nd and I look forward to seeing what next Year Y9s come up with next March.
