WORLE students are queuing up to emulate Alan Sugar and be mentored by an award-winning local entrepreneur in the launch of a new after-school club.
Priory Community School, in Queensway, has launched the Alan Sugar Club as part of its period six programme which aims to enrich students’ education and inspire the youngsters to become the next generation of business people.
Entrepreneur Andrew Scott, of the Ascot Group in Weston, is mentoring the 11 and 12-year-olds to produce their own businesses, as well as forming a group project.
Rob Berry, head of the lower school, said: “There is so much passion and enthusiasm around for setting up new ventures, and we want to tap into this by mentoring the students and to create real-life business projects.”
Andrew Scott said: “Priory has become one of the best schools in the UK and a real success story nationally.
“I’m delighted to be part of their work in inspiring students to achieve amazing things with their lives.”
