Young Enterprise – S6

Calling all budding entrepreneurs!  Are you interested in the experience of setting up in business and learning the high’s and low’s?  We are setting up a Young Enterprise company run by the S6’s of Preston Lodge.  The group will meet at a mutually agreeable lunchtime and decide on the good or service they are going to sell.  The company is run entirely by the pupils in their own time.  Interested, come along to a meeting at lunchtime in C18 on Wednesday at 1.15 pm.  If you’re interested but can’t make the meeting or have any questions, please come along and see Mrs Scott in C18 to express an interest.  This is an invaluable experience for your personal statement, CV or just for life!

UCAS

The deadline for replies has been extended.

Track for applicants and advisers is currently unavailable due to technical issues. We do not anticipate that the service will be restored until early next week. We are working hard to make Track available and we will let you know as soon as it is back online. The technical issues have also affected our ability to deliver a number of other services and there will be no Applicant Status Report this week.

Today’s deadline for replies will be extended, and we will confirm the new date when Track is restored. Please be assured that the new date will give applicants plenty of time to make their replies. We have communicated this to applicants who would have been affected by today’s deadline (by text and email) and informed universities and colleges of this, so applicants do not need to contact them.
