Buckingham Palace Beckons For Team RustiQ

Monday 22nd February 2016

Congratulations to team ‘RustiQ’, who have been selected as one of the finalists of the countrywide enterprise challenge ‘Tycoon in Schools’, run by the Peter Jones Foundation. This is the third time that one of our teams have made it through to the final, which will take place at Buckingham Palace in March.

After competing alongside thousands of students across the country, ‘RustiQ’ is just one of eight teams to be selected by a panel of judges, led by Peter Jones CBE and is now in the running to be crowned winner of this year’s ‘Tycoon in Schools’.

Congratulations must also go to another of our Tycoons teams, ‘Picture This’, who have also been highly commended for their work.

‘RustiQ’ consists of nine, U4 girls (Year 9) with the team opting to produce slate chalk boards for the home, for school and for the office. The girls made a profit of £778 and their chosen charity, the Kamuli Friends Charity, supports the Kamuli Missionary hospital in rural Uganda.

After all their hard work, team ‘RustiQ’ now look forward to attending the exclusive ceremony at Buckingham Palace, where they will be personally congratulated by HRH, The Duke of York KG, Patron of the Peter Jones Foundation and Peter Jones CBE and the overall champions of ‘Tycoon in Schools’ will be unveiled.

Underpinned by Peter’s mission to put enterprise at the heart of the education system, ‘Tycoon in Schools’ is a nationwide competition, run by the Peter Jones Foundation, which aims to encourage and inspire young people across the country to start a business whilst at school. The competition is backed by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills, as part of its wider goal to invigorate entrepreneurialism across the country.

“RustiQ” consists of:

  • Georgie Ralston
  • Sophia Ekundayo
  • Millie Bowater
  • Lucy Goudge
  • Lucy Evans
  • Zoe Campbell
