HIGHFLYING STUDENTS GET DOWN TO BUSINESS
A group of Year 11 Business Studies students from Farmor's School in Fairford have benefited from a special award sponsored by the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust Enterprises, organisers of the Royal International Air Tattoo.
The five finalists, who had to draw up a theoretical business plan, were selected for the Outstanding Business Student of the Year Award at the annual Fairford & Lechlade Business Club Awards. The event was held at the Four Pillars Hotel on the Cotswold Water Park.
Presenting the award to Francesca Mordant was Enterprises' Commercial Director Caroline Rogers, who praised Francesca's unique concept of a mobile sports merchandising business.
The four other finalists were Charlotte Harrison, Chris Wicks, Jack Griffin and Rebecca Risby. The five finalists were shortlisted from approximately 50 students from Farmor's School.
Enterprises Deputy Director of Marketing, Helen Webb, said the award aimed to further recognise the hard work put in by the students on their coursework. She said: "I hope the award gives them an additional incentive to produce high quality work and, of course, it's great for their CV. Our parent charity, the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust is committed to supporting young people which is why we chose to sponsor this award."
