Year 6 Virgin Money Enterprise Scheme

Year 6 have had the fantastic opportunity to be involved in an enterprise project run by Virgin Money.

Virgin Money have invested £5 in every child in the class to set up their own business. Children were allocated groups and decided their own brand name, company logo and what to sell. We carried out market research and costed out each project to ensure profit would be made. Each group decided to go down the Christmas route as they felt this would maximise selling potential.

These are the groups:


  • Merry Popcorn Pouches - festive sweet popcorn
  • Santa's Little Helpers - hand made keys with charms to leave out for Santa.
  • Santa's Woodcutters - hand made personalised wooden decorations
  • Santa's Snowmen - decorated hot chocolate pouches


Children sold their products at the Grainger Market and it was an extremely successful day, nearly selling out of all of our products by 1pm! In total, we made over £180, with more to be sold at the Christmas Fayre and in school. Well done to all of the children for their enthusiasm ideas. I am certain we have the next Richard Branson in our class!
