Year Ten pupils at Banbury Space Studio presented their business ideas to town firms as part of a team project.

Pupils worked on projects with nine firms and showed their work in five-minute presentations. Ideas included new work uniforms for McDonald’s employees, a new car park for Encase and an engineering room at Dematic. Mike Grocott, principal, said: “The pupils did really well; however the important thing is that they recognise what they could improve on . To stand in front of an audience and present was very impressive.” Pictured are students George Faulkner, 14, and Isaac Harewood, 15 with their McDonald’s t-shirt design and Jane Blackwell, McDonald’s franchisee for Banbury.
