Four teams of Business A level and GCSE students have been successful in being awarded funds from Dragon's Den entrepreneur Peter Jones's Tycoon in Schools Foundation.
Each team prepared a business plan in order to pitch for investments of up to £1,000 to start up a business. All four teams were invested in and three are already up and running!
Year 12 team, Manor Essence, pictured, have produced beautiful scented oil diffusers and have today broken even, after just one week of trading. Every sale now will make a positive return on the investment which they have pledged will be donated to charity.
Chromio, the second Year 12 team are also exceeding their sales expectations with their homemade artisan soaps and are on track to make a profit soon.
Year 10 team, Grab & Go have revolutionised break-times as we know them with sales of their tuck shop treats and the Year 13 team will commence trading imminently.
