“It really was fantastic and I hope that the students take something from it.”

The talk was part of the students Learning for Life topic.

Miss Young spoke to year 10, 11 and post-16 students at the school and also took questions from the budding entrepreneurs during her visit.

“Some of the students have already said how good it was and asked some really interesting questions.

“I would just like to thank Claire for coming in and hope that all of the students find it as good as I did.”
