The School: Wendell Park Primary School

Year 5 pupils from Wendell Park Primary School in Hammersmith, have been developing their enterprise skills for two years by working with Enabling Enterprise as a Partner school. They already had the chance to practise their skills through exciting challenges in their school: could they put them to the test in a real business?

The Business: Capco, London

Capital & Counties Properties PLC (Capco) is a London property company with two key assets focused on Earls Court and Covent Garden. It was Capco’s first trip and was a fantastic opportunity for students to learn more about the company and wide variety of careers available there!

The Challenge: Brilliant Builds

The students were placed in teams to develop and create plans for the renovation of Bogsby Town. The students needed to research and consider the community needs of Bogsby and budget their project. The volunteers from Capco gave insights into how the teams may approach their designs, before building their model towns and presenting them to the judging panel.

The Results:

Each team aimed high and stayed positive, creating some fantastic ideas for the town of Bogsby. They were able to use their imagination and problem solving to meet the community needs and use their budgets wisely. Their presentations impressed the judges and the volunteers were amazed by the great teamwork on display. The town of Bogsby has a bright future ahead in the capable hand of these young developers!

What they said:

  • “The students had an excellent time. To see them working so well in a team has been brilliant to see.” – Teacher, Wendell Park Primary School
  • “The designs were so creative. The students were thinking of things I wou;dn’t have thought of!” – Volunteer, Capco
  • “I loved making the models and working with the volunteers. I would love to work here when I’m older!” – Student, Wendell Park Primary

Thanks to Capco for such a great trip day, and to Year 5 from Wendell Park Primary for coming along.
