Lloyds Banking Group invited three teams from Thornaby Academy to compete against 200 students from across the North East. Working in teams of ten, students created new business ideas which incorporated core digital skills. This then allowed them to investigate innovative ways to develop their business ideas.
Supported by many digital companies, the teams worked hard to develop and then present their original ideas, with the best teams winning a prize. The day was a huge success, Thornaby Academy’s team won and were presented on stage with their award.
A special mention goes out to two students, Alfie and Xander, who thoroughly impressed the judges with their ideas and won a £15 Amazon voucher each.
