An annual event in the Bishop Fox’s calendar is the Year 9 Somerset Enterprise Challenge with a range of schools competing from across the county.
This year’s challenge was to create a Christmas Promotional Campaign for the Holiday Inn, Taunton. The students needed to pitch their idea to a panel of judges; including The President of the Chamber of Commerce, Nigel Pearce, Nadine Ackland of TDBC and Emma Hughes from The Holiday Inn.
The student’s ideas were fantastic ranging from Luxury Spar weekends to An Evening of Local Produce. All of the presentations were commended by the judges Emma Hughes said she felt “The students had really captured the ethos of the hotel”
Bishop Fox’s, the winning team, took the trophy for the third time narrowly beating Preston School Yeovil to second place.
