After receiving investment from Peter Jones, two successful businesses were started by four Year 9 students, Lily Watkins, Baaba Andoh, Andrew Rowland and Brooke Nial. Both successfully gained a profit for the trading period in November.

On the 29th November 2013 the final profit submissions were made to the Tenner Tycoon in schools challenge. Over 100 schools across the country have taken part, in the Bexley borough we were competing with two other schools e.g. HACA Temple Grove and Beth’s Grammar.

At the 4pm deadline the profit league table was checked and in 2nd place was Bexleyheath Academy!

Lily and Baaba’s Business named ‘Kella’ had turned their £20 Peter Jones investment into £157.80 this is a 68% increase in returns. Brooke and Andrew’s group which created Graffiti Art returned a profit of £10.50.
