“Thank you for allowing us to take part in the Enterprise Network competition. The students thoroughly enjoyed it and continue to ask when they can do it again! Which is a credit to you and your colleagues who have produced a fantastic package."

Andrea Callender, Advanced Skills Teacher in Business Studies, All Saints Academy Dunstable
