Young Enterprise students from Spalding High School have come away from the area final with the Best Company trophy.

However, the school’s MagBag company members were just as pleased with the awards they felt reflected other aspects of the business.

The South Lincolnshire Young Enterprise Area Final was held at Spalding High School and involved six Young Enterprise companies from schools and colleges in Spalding, Grantham and Boston.

The school won the coveted Best Company, but head of marketing Francesca Bolton said: “Winning Best Company was of course the highlight of the competition, but we were also thankful that we achieved the Environmental, Innovation and Best Presentation awards, as we truly felt these reflected our ethical values and our enduring hard work.”

Three judges from Chattertons, Moore & Thompson and Boston College spent the day looking at company reports and trade stands, interviewing the companies and watching their presentations.

Headmistress Michele Anderson said it was a “tremendous achievement” and added that Mr Garbett, who works with the group, should also be thanked for his support.

MagBag go on to the next round to be held in Lincoln.
