Project Crunch

Description

Pupils at Thomas Alleyne's High School are set an enterprise project to launch a healthier brand of crisps, with the help of local manufacturer Glennans.

Glennans, run by three siblings themselves Thomas Alleyne's alumni, approached the school with an idea for a joint project to celebrate the company's 21st anniversary.

Over six months 1500 pupils create a new brand of crisp - Sunday Munch. Under the guidance of Dawn Shirley, enterprise co-ordinator, and an executive board of sixth formers, teams of mixed abilities and ages contribute to all aspects of product development.

From food technology students testing healthier methods of production, to PE students providing exercise information on packaging; all pupils take ownership for independent learning to develop and launch the product.

But the launch is only the beginning. As well as plans to supply local outlets, there are hopes to extend the range of flavours and approach national supermarket chains to bring Sunday Munch to the masses.
