Car Washing Enterprise

Charlie, a sixth form student from Young People’s Academy has started a very successful car washing enterprise. The enterprise started off washing cars of the staff at YPA, it has now grown to our Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust site at Wyvern House, Harte and Hanks and Bosch. He is hoping to move to other businesses in Uxbridge to reach his maximum capacity and expand his business to its full potential.

It is a weekly service, and there have been a lot of repeat customers. Charlie buys all his own products, sets the prices and washes all the cars himself. He has learnt how to work out his profit each week and is really enjoying the experience.

One customer said “I came out of work and didn’t recognise my car, what a brilliant job!”

 

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
