The Ashcombe School


Cedar reach the Young Enterprise Surrey Finals

Our two firms, Veco and Cedar, from the Young Enterprise programme, were due to attend the South Surrey Showcase at Tormead school in March.  However, because this could not take place, a back-up plan was put in place for students to submit their company report, presentation, advert and a picture of their trade stand online.  This process took place over the Easter holidays and the final judging was conducted via Zoom on Wednesday 22nd April  chaired by ex-Ashcombe student, Danesh Amin, who is now chair of the South Surrey YE board.

From a field of eight firms from The Ashcombe, Tormead, and RGS Guildford, Cedar came joint runner-up and go through to the Surrey Finals.  The judges praised both their report and presentation and, in particular, the level of progression they have shown through the programme so far, as well as ‘a product with huge potential beyond YE’.

The adverts for the two firms: Veco, Cedar together with Cedar’s presentation are now on YouTube.
