Last Wednesday, a team of five Year 10 students visited the Loftus Road stadium to take part in the first stage of The  Enterprise Challenge.  The scheme is an annual event, run by The Premier League and supported by the Department of Business. The completion gives students the chance to develop their knowledge of principles of Business and self-employment.

On the day, the teams were assigned the task of thinking of innovative ideas to attract more families to QPR home games. They then had to present their ideas to a panel of judges made up of local Business people. 

Despite facing tough completion from six other  teams - including  Phoenix High School and Hammersmith academy - the judges decided Burlington Danes Academy had produced the strongest presentation and announced them the winners.

Jordan Bailey, Jayden Ritchie, Yonis Ahmed, Parvez Miah and Mohamed Jamal, will now go forward to represent QPR in the next stage of the competition, taking place at the Emirates Stadium on Monday 23rd of March.  Congratulations to the boys for their superb efforts and good luck in the next round!
