Business Communications Workshop-Seminar at Thorpe Park

Over 60 students went from Year 11 GCSE Business Communications and Business Studies courses attended a trip to Thorpe Park last week. Mrs Jackson (group leader), Mrs Theophilus and Mr Agyeman accompanied the student to a workshop-seminar at the amusement park to learn about the workings of the successful corporation Merlin Entertainment.

Stanley Park students were taught about how Thorpe Park uses creative marketing, strong business strategies and effective customer service to build on its national success, ensuring that customers experience the magic of the park. Students also undertook an interactive challenge to create valid business proposals for one of the park’s new rides; the winning teams received fast track tickets for a ride of their choice. Students also experienced the thrill of Thorpe Park rides first-hand.
