Our Future Magazine - March 2013
This magazine has been written wholly by Year 7 students at Malet Lambert. The content actually took them three hours, but they were only able to produce this work because of the dedication of their teachers, parents, carers, peers and friends, and because of their experiences in the many years since they were born. The chaps from Engaging Education helped a little too, by providing guidance during the different projects that were combined to make this magazine.
A special ‘thank you’ must go to Stephen Logan, Robert Black, Charles Cracknell, The John Cracknell Youth Enterprise Bank and the staff at Malet Lambert High School, for without their support; the project would not have come to fruition. Download a copy below:
Careers Week 2013 - March 2013
National Careers Week 2013 was an important part of the school’s guidance programme. We were delighted to see so many of our business and educational partners give up their time to encourage our pupils to give thought to their futures. The variety of activities organised throughout the week was a pleasure to see! Year 7 pupils learning skills within the construction industry, year 8 pupils ‘fixing up their futures’ at Hull City Hall, year 9 understanding the influence of the digital world on society, year 10 looking at routes into social work, nursing and childcare and year 11 considering opportunities in further and higher education were just some of the highlights of the week.

The 2012 Badgers Sett - November 2012
The Badgers Sett Enterprise Challenge won by our own Loui Fowler who got a package of support worth over £3,000. Ruth Badger was so impressed with his business idea that she doubled the original amount. It was a big secret and Loui didn't know he was the winner until it was announced at our awards evening this year. There are few people we can think of who deserve this award as much as Loui who brought an incredible idea to the table that he pitched perfectly, and blew the judges away.

Year 11 students present at the Hull Exchange launch
Pictured with Sam Whitaker and Ann Newlove from Hull Esteem Emma Gale, Liam McCullion and Tom Cooper.
On Friday the 30th September 3 Year 11 students Emma Gale, Tom Cooper and Liam McCullion presented at the launch of the Hull Exchange about their work experience and employability skills.
The exchange is a hub designed to help young people with employability and skills issues. Located in Wilberforce Court, in the same building as Hull Esteem Consortium’s offices, The Exchange will create a lasting legacy in terms of assisting various different agencies that support local young people, whether that be through work experience, enterprise opportunities, gaining life skills or supporting a route into education, employment or training.
Throughout my time putting the presentation together with my fellow class mates. I have realised the amount of different business opportunities and there is a business world. This day was just one of many more connections I wish to make in my life.
I learnt that some activities or things you are asked to do are hard and you have to leave your comfort zone for. But isn’t that just preparing us for later in life where we have to make deadlines and we have to succeed under pressure.
I have also learnt to be more natural when presenting and how to have fun more than stress with events like these. I am very pleased with the way the day went as the connections we made in later life are unbelievable, and will help us with our careers choices and which path to follow. Thank you for this brilliant opportunity, it has been worth it in the long run.
I learnt about development around Hull and skills such as confidence and determination which I can apply in my curriculum. I also received business contacts to influence my decisions in college. The day helped me to gain an understanding of what it’s like to present to an audience. It also helped me further my business idea.

"I have learnt that to be successful not to give up. That you can be what you want to be no matter what it is. Take little steps at a time, don’t give up."
"I have learnt what inspired some of the most successful people in the Business Industry. I learnt that if you try hard at something it may give you a better life in the future. Also I have learnt that business’s start out in a lot of weird ways. I met some successful business people aged 16/17 who have some of their own businesses."
"I would like to say a big thank you to all of the Entrepreneurs and I am very grateful towards Claire Young who made it possible for Malet Lambert to attend the event."

SMart Futures Competition - Tuesday 19th January 2011
The strength of the both presentations and the student questioning yesterday was the highlight of the morning yesterday. The scores were incredibly close between Hornsea and Malet Lambert with just 1.6% between them and Hornsea taking the edge to be the outright winners! South Axholme, Hessle High, Malet Lambert and Beverley High are also going through to the final round – the naming of the Hornsea zones. Details of this will be sent out shortly but please put the 11th March in your diaries as the opportunity to present your proposal to SMart Wind.
SMart Wind Competition - Wednesday 19th January 2011
Four year 8 students from Malet Lambert School have taken part in a recent competition to name one of the 8 sections of the Hornsea Zone Wind Turbine farm. This is a new initiative costing around £15 Billion over the next 10 years. It is the largest engineering project in the world. The aim is to provide the UK with 20% - 40% of electricity through the projects wind farms in the North Sea. This is an exciting opportunity for Malet Lambert students to name the area that will be printed on maps in several different languages for the next 100 or so years.
The students spent much of their lunch time and time at home working on the project. We had the most professional display in the competition and produced a fantastic presentation. The students were then grilled by a judging panel and other students from around East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. Our students proposed a site at the Europarc business park near Grimsby, which we later found out, was one of the potential sites actually being considered. We were the only school to suggest one of the real potential sites. During the presentation our students handed out the leaflets they made to the other groups, again showing another level of professionalism.
We have passed round one and have been entered into round two. Overall, we came second to Hornsea school, but beat the likes of Beverley High School & Hessle High School. It was a very impressive mature performance from our students who after the results were announced went over to Hornsea to congratulate them. It was a proud moment for me as a member of staff to see our students perform in such a magnanimous way.

The pupils undertook the Hull 'Carbon' Enterprise Challenge that saw the pupils come up with environmental friendly products. Students in groups of 5 worked enthusiastically throughout the day and by the end of the activity many had come up with some great ideas. They had all produced an ideas sheet, setting out what their idea was and how it was going to be successful, another page about the likely competitors in their proposed market place and also a money matters page, setting out how much money their idea was going to produce, taking into account both their costs and revenue streams Finally, and most challenging of all, they had to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges from local organisations. The four top teams were awarded a range of viuchers from High Street Stores sponsored by the Insurance Partnership, Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce, Mail News and Media and Jenkins Shipping Port Services
Eleven groups were invited to present these were Turbo Turner, U-Bot, Super Stopper, Historical Trails, Dress The Earth, Gym Lectricity, Eco - Exchange, Green Queens, HVB Cars, November Enterprise Group and Branch Out.

All the pupils received a copy of Hull´s Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2010 Dave Garbera´s new book Smilers Part Two Lessons in Enterprise.
The pupils were joined by a delegation from the Institute of Directors (IoD) led by Alex Mitchell, the Head of Influencer Relations at the IoD and Alex Charlotte Britton Chair of IoD YDF who were very impressed by what they saw
