L6 Young Enterprise team, represented by Elliott Brown, Hassan Khan, Lewis Chinchen and Henry Stevenson came runner-up at the recent Sheffield & Rotherham YE presentation final. The team, going by the name of Rebus, produced high quality school calendars, highlighting important dates for parents, as well as using images to show off a range of activities and successes at Birkdale. In addition to the runner-up trophy, they also won the award for Best Marketing. As a result, they now progress on to the South Yorkshire Final on 9th May.
On Tuesday 14 March our acclaimed Birkdale Big Band joined a number of other schools at the Sheffield University Octagon, for the first round of the national Music For Youth Festival. Over 50 days, all across the whole country, tens of thousands of young musicians will be taking part in similar regional rounds. If successful, groups would then be required to progress to the next round - national finals which will be held in Birmingham.
