Northamptonshire County Schools Challenge 2017: Huxlow prepare for semi-finals

The Northamptonshire County Schools Challenge (NCSC) is an annual competition in which students across the county are asked to develop an enterprising idea which will help other young people who are struggling with a specific social issue. This year’s theme is Drugs and Psychoactive Substances.

All Year 8 students have participated. Each form voted for a winning group to represent them in the Huxlow final, held on Wednesday 24th May 2017. The groups pitched their ideas in a “Dragon’s Den” style to a judging panel and their peers. The entries were of an outstanding quality and were skilfully presented. Congratulations to the winning group, 8LHB, who will also be assisted by the runners-up in refining their presentation over the coming weeks. The group will represent the College at the semi-finals to be held in June, and hopefully progress to the finals as last year’s Huxlow team did.
