Senior students from Robert Burns Academy have taken part in Young Enterprise Scotland’s Company Programme, where they were officially named as Ayrshire’s Young Enterprise Company of the Year.

Barony Collections was one of the teams taking part, who have successfully started their business to create personalised marbled mugs which they have then sold on in order to make a profit.

The team have worked through all stages of developing their business by fundraising, conducting market research, designing their logo and branding, marketing their product and selling it.

All pupils are also working towards their accreditation where they gain recognised qualifications. The team will now represent Ayrshire at the Scottish finals in June. Well done and good luck!
