Successful Entrepreneurs at
Stranraer Academy

Richard Branson and the country’s leading entrepreneurs had better watch out if the achievements of Stranraer Academy pupils are anything to go by.

A group of sixth year pupils at the school have just lifted the Strathclyde and South-West Scotland title for the most successful secondary school participating in the national young enterprise scheme.

And now they are looking towards the national final next month, where the judges will decide if they have what it takes to be declared the best in Scotland.

Back in September, at the beginning of this school session, they launched the "Blue Midgie" Company as part of the enterprise scheme.

In the seven months since, they have progressed to a full company with two successful products on the market.

Sales are booming and the eight pupils in the company have just returned from a trip to Glasgow University where they collected the Glenfiddich Centenary Quaich for best in the region.
