AN INNOVATIVE team of year 10 students from Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College set out to the South West Trade Fair at Cabot Circus to sell its popular Keep Calm rings.

In similar fashion to the BBC TV programme The Apprentice, the team members of Ultimate Enterprise, divided themselves up into groups with different responsibilities including arranging the display, finding customers and selling.

Student Alex Hopkins said: “We all took turns in selling and became very competitive, it was great fun.”

The team made £140 at the end of the day and the money will be put back into the company to develop its next products.
