Two pupils in Year 7 decided to make the most of their time at home during the recent lockdown and started their own business. Savannah and Anastazia in Year 7 began Waxy Wonders – an environmentally friendly candle company.

“We are in Year 7 and started Waxy Wonders as obviously in lockdown we couldn’t really go out. So we wanted to do something productive instead of just looking at social media all day and night. Why candles? You may ask. Well we wanted to do something handmade and good for the environment, our candles are environmentally friendly, made with soy wax and everything (including packaging) is biodegradable or recyclable. We grew up around female business entrepreneurs and were inspired by them and what they have done and accomplished. We have always wanted a business and we are so glad now that we have a successful one together. We are really proud of what we have accomplished through this pandemic including making the front cover of the daily news! Thank you to everyone who has supported us, we are so incredibly grateful.”
