Youngsters from a county academy have taken home a prize in sales as part of a Dragon’s Den style event.

The Blyth Academy pupils have been working on their enterprise skills throughout the academic year with a focus on teamwork, communication, leadership and innovation.

The finals gave students the opportunity to visit four themed Dragon’s Den areas consisting of marketing, sales, finance and product design tasks.

These tasks were then judged by more than ten business representatives from across the north east who were acting as ‘Dragons’ for the day.

The challenge for the day was for all students to create the perfect pencil case.
