The Beech Academy and Urban Flamingo Takeover Challenge

Ten post-16 students from The Beech Academy in Mansfield took over the running of Urban Flamingo in Chesterfield, a small independent gift shop who actively support craftspeople by stocking a range of goods which are locally made.

School contacts, students friends and families were invited to go along to the event and browse the lovely items! Throughout the process students had learnt many skills, such as team work, speaking to new people, creativity, problem solving, confidence and much more!
