Can you believe we’re a month in to the trading phase of Tycoon in Schools 2017? That means we’re over half way and there’s only three weeks of the competition left. With Christmas Fairs running at many schools and local areas, now is the time to take advantage of those opportunities to get your team(s) on that leaderboard, which is getting closer by the day! Remember - you can still win the overall competition even if you’re not on the leaderboard.
With the final stretch of the trading fast approaching, we recommend that you start thinking about the evaluation process, which has two elements to it. The Business Review document is what Peter Jones CBE and our partners at Sage will be looking at when choosing the teams that will attend the final ceremony. There will also be an evaluation survey to help us improve the competition. If you want to have a look at these documents to get ahead of the game, they can be found here.
The leaderboard is showing how competitive this year has been so far, with rapid changes in position over the last week; we hope everyone’s been keeping an eye on it.
At the end of week four, congratulations again to Corkin’ from AKS Lytham Independent School who are in first place for the third week in a row, Sketch Kids from Wyvil Primary School who are in second place for the second week in a row, and Master Merchants from St Andrew’s Southgate Primary School have impressively made it in to third place.

Lots of teams have been busy documenting their progress on social media, and you’ll find some of our favourite posts below!
And, finally, please be sure to keep your trading figures up to date so that it’s accurately reflected on the leaderboard.
