A group of GCSE pupils at Trinity School have made the shortlist of a national competition run by the Design Museum.
Design Ventura represents a collaboration between the museum and Deutsche Bank.
It tasks pupils with creating a product especially for the Design Shop.
Around 16,000 pupils from across the UK entered this year.
Among them was a team of five from Year 9 at Trinity.
Their product – a sustainable roll-up bamboo pencil case – beat off fierce competition, earning them a place at an awards ceremony in February.
Trinity’s head of design and technology Liam Anderson said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for students to work on a live brief that challenges them to think about real world problem-solving and is an excellent experience for students to take part in a professional competition which develops so many design and enterprise skills.”
