Seven Year 9 students won the Young Entrepreneurs final at GCHQ last week. This annual competition has now been won by Westonbirt two years running! The first round took place in school during the autumn term. Amongst fierce competition, the winning group of students did a fantastic job to make it to the county final.
Competing against 9 other schools from Gloucestershire, the Westonbirt team had to deliver a pitch to a panel of judges from GCHQ and other local businesses around a theme. This year's theme was ‘technology over the next 100 years'. With their clever and well thought out idea of ‘iFridge Mifridge’ and a well-delivered pitch, the team took home first prize.
Congratulations to our winning group of students and thank you to Mrs Edwards for her support and guidance for the team.
