The fact that Maddy produced such a first-rate storyboard is a great credit to her and she should feel very proud of her achievement.

The topic of this year’s (2020) competition was ‘The changing workplace: same spaces new realities’. The focus was on how the coronavirus pandemic has affected the way we work, jobs and the economy. Pupils across England created films and storyboards that explored how workplaces, from schools to factories, are changing, and what they might look like in the future.

Head of Business and Economics, Jon Bathard-Smith, congratulated Maddy and put her forward for a Headmaster’s Commendation which she will receive at the end of term assembly.
