A TEAM of budding business brains from an Amersham school have made it through to the final of a technology competition for creating their own app.

The three year 10 students will take their design to the national Apps for Good Awards at the Barbican in London on Monday, June 23.

Ian Fan, Matt Wood and James O'Brien have been shortlisted for the prize for their 'Accumulus' file sharing app and will be given the chance to pitch their creation to the judging panel next week.

Should they win, the brainy Bucks students' app will be professionally produced in association with the award's major sponsors and app development companies before being launched to the public in January.

Headmaster Dr Mark Fenton said: "Apps for Good enables us to bring a creative learning programme to our school that unlocks the confidence and talents of our students. We are proud of the students behind 'Accumulus', and delighted to see them design and make products that can make a difference to their world."
