Claremont Fan Court School’s young entrepreneurs walked away with the top prize at the North Surrey Young Enterprise final last week.

The event, hosted by Procter and Gamble (P&G) at their Weybridge headquarters on March 26, saw 17 groups from 13 different schools and colleges showcase their business nous in front of a judging panel and 200 audience members.

The students, aged between 15 and 18, came up with their own companies, designed a product or service and then marketed it.

Groups from Claremont Fan Court School took the first and second prizes, whilst teams from Heathside and Hinchley Wood School won the awards for best company report and best trade stand respectively.

Claremont Fan Court School also picked up the awards for best presentation, best video advertisement and best innovation.

Niall de Lacy, HR director of P&G UK & Ireland said: “Programmes like young enterprise show that when we bring all our skills and talents to the table and work cooperatively, every element of our community benefits, and especially future generations.”
