MILLIONAIRE and former BBC 'Dragon' Theo Paphitis congratulated a group of students from Horizon Community College after it was named most enterprising school in the UK.

The award came as part of the National Enterprise Championship 2014. More than 20,000 pupils from across the country took part in the contest, with the year eight team from Horizon making it through to the finals in Staffordshire.

Paul Robson, the school's community enterprise co-ordinator, said: "This is such a prestigious award and commends the enterprise work that Horizon Community College continually delivers on a vast scale.

"The students and staff are looking forward to using this amazing experience to go from strength to strength and are elated that Horizon has been recognised for the huge commitment it gives to community enterprise."
