Classroom Capers won the Education category in this Sussex based business award.
Here's the paper's explanation of the awards, qualifiers and process:
"The leading lights of the area’s business world gathered to celebrate their achievements and successes at this newspaper’s Business Matters Awards last Friday.
Covering Horsham, Crawley, Mid Sussex and parts of East Sussex, the annual awards were hosted by television newsreader and presenter Fred Dinenage at Gatwick’s Copthorne Hotel Effingham.
The business event has run successfully in Horsham district for many years, but was expanded this year to cover other parts of the South East.
Nominations were sent in by readers, then judged by James Stoner, managing director of JSPC Computer Services, Daniel Grainge, a partner at chartered accountants’ Spofforths, and Gary Shipton, Editor In Chief of the host newspapers - the West Sussex County Times, the Crawley Observer, the Mid Sussex Times, and the Sussex Express."

"We are incredibly proud to have won this award. As our first business awards, it was so exciting being there when the results were announced. It was a privilege to be surrounded by so many top performing companies and now to be considered one of them. Well done to everyone involved and all the other winners. It just goes to prove the talent, dedication and hard work that exists locally. Now of course we are automatically entered for the Southern Business Awards - an even more prestigious prize to win.
