Twenty five pupils from two Brent secondary schools were given a VIP day at Dungeness B power station after they scooped the top prize in an EDF energy competition.

The all-girl team from Convent of Jesus and Mary Language College in Harlesden won the Year 8 prize with their campaign titled “#Standby Off Friday”.

Meanwhile Kenton’s Claremont High School pupils won the prize for Year 9 with their campaign “Lights, Energy, Action”.

The pupils joined the ‘Big Energy Efficiency’ project along with hundreds of other pupils from across the country to learn how the plant in Kent generates low-carbon nuclear energy for around 1.5m homes.

Sally Cottrell, community investment manager at EDF Energy said: “We want to encourage youngsters to think about energy issues from an early age.
