Students from Headlands School stepped into the dragon’s den and came out unscathed.

The sixth-formers have set up their own enterprise and headed to Ferriby for an event which had elements of the TV show where entrepreneurs try to impress business leaders.

The group have formed Odyssey Clothing and were pitching the idea at the Young Enterprise North Humber Company of the Year final at the Hallmark Hotel yesterday.

They had to show their products at a trade stand and had 10 minutes to impress the judges by talking through their fashion range.

Next, the team had a gruelling interview in front of local business leaders, where their business model and marketing strategy was scrutinised.

Finally, Eduards Lurans and Robert Philpot gave a presentation to a room of over 100 people.

Associate assistant headteacher David Stamper said: “The students have learnt very valuable life skills and interview techniques in preparation for their future endeavours.

“We hope their company will go from strength to and their sales will continue. “
