Enterprising Efforts – Bromsgrove School

04 Aug 2021

Congratulations to Bromsgrove School’s Young Enterprise Team ‘Symplex’ who won the Creativity in Business and Overall Winner prizes at the Worcestershire Company of the Year Competition.  

The students had created a product based upon the challenges faced by working from home. Their product, the ‘OrganiSTATION’ is an innovative wooden display stand to hold stationery and other essential items. The team pre-empted that most of their selling would be online this year as opposed to the traditional method of selling at trade fairs and thus provided a solution for this in creating a product that could be flat packed and posted easily.


The team worked hard throughout lockdown and the enforced School closures, meeting online each Saturday and continuing their work once lockdown eased and they were all  back in School. At the  West Midlands Regional Finals the team faced tough competition but stood out to the judges for their incredible cooperation as a team. They were delighted to win the Teamwork Award  and they were highly commended for their ability to overcome the various challenges they had faced over the year
