The Hatch is open for business!

Students from Wyvern House have opened their very own enterprise:The Hatch.

The Hatch is a pop-up shop selling fruit, snacks, sweets and drinks. Students are managing the whole process of running the business, including ordering stock and keeping an inventory, visual merchandising, pricing, branding, marketing and sales.

Alongside their main product base, The Hatch is selling student artwork and other handmade products, with more limited edition products on the way.

Laurie Cornwell, Deputy CEO, came to the opening event to cut the ribbon, officially opening The Hatch for business!

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
