Queen's team top Tycoon leaderboard

Trading finished just before Christmas for our Tycoon teams with one of them topping the national leaderboard for profit.

Team Kids4Kids made £900 profit with their environmental children's storybook ‘Tia the Turtle’. The girls wrote and illustrated the book themselves before selling it at school events and at the Blue Planet Aquarium.

Another Queen’s team also had great success with their environmental themed product and have placed 15th.

Team Eco 365 produced an eco-friendly planner which contained challenges, tips and recipes to help people make their life more environmentally sustainable.

Superb achievements from both teams and we are currently waiting to hear what this means regarding the next stage of the competition.

Head of Business Studies Mr Durkan said: "I am so proud of all of the teams who took part this year and we eagerly await to hear what happens next! In the meantime we will be launching the competition to our Year 10 girls for the first time this week to give them the opportunity to develop the valuable business skills and knowledge it provides. I look forward to seeing what superb ideas our next set of business tycoons come up with!"

This is the fourth year The Queen's School has taken part in the national competition which was launched by former Dragon Peter Jones in July 2012 and gives primary and secondary school students an opportunity to experience running a real life business within their school, thereby stimulating a more enterprising culture across Britain.
