A team of eight excited Year 6 entrepreneurs from Ashfold School in Buckinghamshire beat five local prep schools to win the Apprentice Challenge 2018 at Bloxham School.

Ashfold wins Bloxham Apprentice Challenge 2018

The Ashfold team was tasked with creating an advertising campaign for a new brand of yoghurt aimed at the children’s market. They rose to the challenge and displayed great teamwork skills. Each member of the team had a clearly designated task and together, they developed strong, creative ideas, completing their marketing plan and posters in good time. Having filmed their advertisement, they presented their marketing pitch and their 50-second advert.

Head of PSHE & RS at Ashfold, Mrs Jan Price said, “The judges were extremely impressed with the Ashfold advert as well as the team’s jokes, teamwork, creativity and particularly their 'bonkers' idea to call their yoghurt 'Explodo'!”

The wining team was treated to a reception of party poppers, cakes and pink fizz!
