Business studies students from Mildenhall College Academy received the chance to enhance their creative skills earlier this month after participating in the National Enterprise Challenge.

Pupils from Years 9,10 and 11 took on an intense day of designing, costing, planning and presenting their ideas after being set the task of creating a new roller coaster ride at Alton Towers.

Working in groups, nine teams battled it out for the chance to win a place in the national final which will take place in July.

The groups came up with a variety of unique selling points for their rides ranging from and infinity shaped ride to one where passengers are laying down.

Following the judging of each groups presentation the winning team was announced as The Unanswered.

The team was made up of pupils Owen Dunn, Ryan Lumb, Kieran Locke, Bradley Norman, Dawson Davidson, Callum Davis and Niall Leonard.
