Places were snapped up by eager schoolkids in London’s East End when an annual business school put on extra classes during half-term.
The wannabe young entrepreneurs queued up to get in Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership’s over-subscribed class.
A lucky 30 managed to get places in the class held at Bow School to learn marketing techniques, sales forecasting and calculating profit and loss.
“Our business schools are always over-subscribed,” said the business partnership charity’s Helen Sanson. “It shows the eagerness and entrepreneurial spirit of these teenagers.”
The highlight of the week was selling their goods to real customers at Poplar’s Chrisp Street Market, where stalls were made available for them for their sales pitch, and at Barclays offices in Canary Wharf.

Greetings cards sold well at Chrisp Street, but not perfume, they learned. It was the other way round at the Canary Wharf’s business district.
But sales were brisk and they raised £580 for two charities, Sister Christine’s South Poplar housing action group and Save The Children.
