The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge staff worked with year seven students for a day developing their ideas and business acumen with a task set by Kidzania, a London attraction that is an indoor city run by children.

Pupils were asked to create, brand and market a brand new idea or activity to pitch to the bosses at Kidzania.

The winners of challenge will now represent the school at the national finals held at The International Conference Centre in Telford on July 4.

Over 1,500 people are expected at this year's finals event, with celebrities and business leaders due to attend, including Theo Paphitis from Dragon's Den.
