THREE entrepreneurial students have come up with plans to become millionaires - and won themselves through to the finals of a Dragons Den-style competition.

Year sevens Brad Loveridge and Millie Steer of Priory Community School will now compete at the South West finals in Weston in June.

Brad came up with plans to buy produce from China and sell it at a big profit, while Millie created a unique plan to market ‘freshen-up wipes’.

The impressed local business ‘Dragons’ that judged the event were Mark Brothwell of The Building Consultancy, Jodie McLean, of Eurosigns GB, and Paul Harper from Weston College.

The students are carrying on their entrepreneurial development as part of the school’s successful period six classes - which are held at the end of the school day at the Queens Way site in Worle.
