Year Nine Business Studies students Lana East, Charlotte Badcock and Hayley Cornwell pictured at the Ely Community College trade fair.
The trade fair is the final part of a two-month project where students have had the chance to set up mini-enterprises. They have had to write business plans which consider such things as finance, the method of production and the jobs each person has. Students are able to sell their products and, hopefully, make a profit.
This is the third year that this annual event has been running. The biggest reported profit so far is £124.
Products that were sold included: jewellery, Mother's Day and Easter presents, customised clothes, sweets, candles and confectionery.

Business Studies teacher Sam Rayner said: "This year went really well, between 300 and 400 people came and it seems to get better and better every year."
She added: "The students get a great deal out of it, they get to use the theory from lessons in practice, and work as part of a team. They also get to see the rewards that hard work can bring because they keep all the profits themselves"
