Innovative high school students are set to take on the most promising young entrepreneurs in the county as part of the Young Enterprise initiative.
Eight Year 12 students at Ellesmere Port Catholic High started their company ‘Quickfire Cards’ in September last year.
The company writes, designs and produces revision aids for pupils sitting their GCSEs and has already progressed to the Young Enterprise Cheshire area final.

Now the talented teenagers are hoping that regional and national finals are within their reach.
The team deployed professional market research methods to determine the most popular and effective learning methods for Year 10 and 11 students and used their findings to develop a range of revision cards for GCSE subjects.

These were then reviewed and approved by subject specialists and the resulting product produced for sale in school.
Team member Madison said: “I am very grateful for being given this amazing enterprise opportunity and am very proud of what we have achieved together. We are looking forward to what the future brings.”
Business studies teacher Gill Allen, who organises the school’s Young Enterprise scheme, said: “The cards are an excellent learning resource which are proving very popular. The product is quite unique in that it has been specifically developed by students for students and designed to meet a wide range of learning styles.”
