GDST Lead Show Case Winners

Lower Sixth students from across the GDST family came together at London School of Economics (LSE) for the GDST LEAD Final Showcase on Thursday 23 March 2023, to present their sustainable business ideas, mentored by LSE alumni, and judged by entrepreneurs and experts.

Drop Cycle from Croydon High School were delighted to win the Best Financial Performance Award. The Lower Sixth students raised over £950 sales revenue and £910 in net profit for their charitable organisation Woodland Trust and our school community.

Mrs Serradilla says, “We are incredibly proud of our pupils and the hard work that Drop Cycle have done, to create a sustainable business idea that can make an impact for our local community”.

“LEAD was a very beneficial experience that opened my eyes into how a team works to run a business.”

“LEAD has allowed me to develop and learn skills  that would not only be beneficial in business but in all aspects of life.”

“My favourite part of  LEAD was the opportunities given, especially with being able to socialise with students from other GDST schools. It was a great experience and has made me more confident as a person”
