Two groups of Year 10 students from GCSE Business studies have been entered into the Accumulative Challenge - a nationwide competition, which will see Orchard pupils take on 180 other schools.
 
Each team - one boys and one girls - has been given £50 and their task is to raise as much money as possible, using their entrepreneurial skills, by January 12.
 
They are now in the process of finding ideas for fundraising events.
 
The boys team has already carried out a car wash, where they scrubbed teachers cars' in the school car park. Local businesses are also being approached for sponsorship.
 
All proceeds will go to the Papworth Trust, which cares for disabled people within the local area.
