Above: Durrant`s Den

Durrant`s Den is the LGfL version of the Dragons Den (BBC TV Programme) – All LGfL Schools were encouraged to bid for money from a total of £10,000, contributed by Havering LA, Synetrix, Atomwide, Fronter and LGfL. Schools needed to complete the bid form and short listed schools stood up in front of Dragons to pitch their sale for some of the money on July 10th via Video Conference.

Following the exciting pan-London ‘Den’ video event, LGfL is delighted to announce that eleven schools have impressed the ‘Dragons’ and will receive financial backing for the projects for which they were bidding. Groups of children ranging from Y1 to Y12 pitched to the Dragons (CEOs of LGfL’s supplier partners Atomwide, Fronter and Synetrix joined by Havering’s ICT Inspector) who were unanimous in their praise for the quality of presentation, interaction and creativity of the bids. The Dragons have provided over £10,000 in support of this programme

Brian Durrant CEO, LGFL said: “I am delighted that the London Grid for Learning, the consortium made up of all London’s LAs, was able to host another creative curriculum event. ‘Durrant’s Den’ fosters the entrepreneurial initiative of pupils, and brings them right into the ‘Den’, through video-conferencing over the ‘Grid’, without needing to leave school.”
