Eight Year 10 pupils have been named runners-up in the Hull leg of the Young Enterprise Company of the Year competition.
Beating teams from Hymers College, Wilberforce College and Kelvin Hall School, they secured second place for their educational book for Key Stage 1 pupils.
They now head into the regional finals in May, competing against a second Hymers College team, and two further teams from the East Riding of Yorkshire, who complete their local heat this week. The winning team will represent the region in the Yorkshire finals.
The team has written and illustrated their own book, which aims to help children deal with the emotions of parental separation.
It follows the story of Panda and Mouse, and how Panda helps his friend overcome the initial upset of parents who no longer live together.
The team received excellent feedback on their original idea, and the execution of it. Judges were also very impressed with their team presentation.
Young Enterprise encourages school children to create their own business from scratch and make money from a product that they source or invent, before competing against other schools for Company of the Year.
