Our founder, Peter Jones CBE, said “I would like to wish good luck to all those collecting their GCSE results today – I hope that you get the grades that you deserve.
“As much as results day is about celebration, it’s also about decision making. I launched the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy in 2009 to give young entrepreneurs the skills and opportunities to pursue a worthwhile and rewarding career and it is more important than ever that we inspire our young people to dream big about their future.
My name is Melanie Mays-Tanton and I graduated from the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy (PJEA) in 2014, at the Sheffield City College campus. I studied the intensive one-year extended diploma (level 3) in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship which has been one of them most exciting years of my life.
