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.

Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
