pupils in business

The Young Enterprise Scheme runs every year at Farnborough Hill, under the expert guidance of Business and Economics Teacher Miss Lucy Miller.  We spoke with Miss Miller and two Year 10 pupils, Eesha, Managing Director of Lazy Mountain, and Gabby, Managing Director of Aura, to learn more about the entrepreneurial scheme.
