A TEAM of students from Oxford High School who created a 'socially-concious' story book have been named Young Enterprise's 'Oxfordshire Company of the Year.'

Seven teams from schools across the county competed for prizes, which also included best use of digital media and best presentation, at The King’s Centre in Osney Mead on April 30.

Schools, including Oxford Academy and Abingdon School, were taking part in the young enterprise programme, which equips them with employability skills, knowledge and confidence.

The programme, supported by bank HSBC, sees students set up and run a business or social enterprise for a year.

Zest, from Oxford High School, won the overall competition for their book which aims to tackle prejudice against social minorities.

Think, from Oxford Academy, came second for setting up a social enterprise to tackle drug use in Blackbird Leys.

Both teams will now compete in the South Central Regional Company of the Year Competition, representing Oxfordshire.
