College hosts an annual Dragons’ Den competition with the winners taking part in GCHQ’s ‘Intelligent Innovators’ competition in partnership with GFirst Local Enterprises. On Wednesday 14 October the Third Form were helped by many local businessmen and women with the development and planning of an item that would help busy people in their travelling. The teams had to develop a presentation that considered the design, the market for the product and the financial planning.
