Dragons' Den

Dragons' Den

Third Form pupils had a chance to compete in an exciting Dragons’ Den style competition sponsored by GCHQ and led by Gfirst LEP and Gloucestershire EBP.   

The pupils worked in small groups with over 20 professional mentors developing products based on communication/mobile devices, business technology or cyber security.   

The Third Form pupils embraced the day working collaboratively with their peers and being open to suggestions from their business facilitators.   

All of the teams delivered their presentations to a panel of professionals before the six finalists were chosen.   

The winning team of Reid Anderson (3rd, L), James Daly (3rd, H), Dougal Rees (3rd, Xt), Cordelia Shorthouse (3rd, A), Thomas Smith (3rd, BH) and Daisy Wildman (3rd, Ch) designed an innovative application aimed at combatting cyber bullying in schools. As well as taking away £15 worth of iTunes vouchers, they will receive some extra coaching from their very own business facilitator and will go to the Gloucestershire Schools’ final at GCHQ in April.   

We wish them good luck in the final.
