The Henry

Dragons Den

The Henry Beaufort School was invited by Sparsholt College to take part in a Dragon’s Den event, where we competed against the other Winchester schools to gain investment from local businesspeople. Our task was to come up with a sustainable solution to a problem within the school. Oscar created our House Bin system, where there’ll be 7 bins, one for each house. Each bin will have a clear front and clear bin liners, so whichever house has the most litter by the end of the week will win prizes or points for their house. Jonah made a prototype out of wood to show the Dragons. Eventually, two Dragons made an offer totalling £250 to get the project going! Hannah, Jonah and Pan bravely presented the idea in front of a large audience and made the school incredibly proud. The creation of the bins will be starting soon!
