OBs' News

Congratulations to Zoe Taylor (Cooper) and Austin Mitchell who were both included in the New Years’ Honours List.

Zoe joined our 6th Form in 1986 and is now CEO of whiteboard software animation company Sparkol and was awarded the MBE for Services to Export. Videoscribe is a software tool which creates animation tools for businesses, schools and agencies so that they can make their own videos; it is now used in more than 160 different countries across the world.

Austin left BGS in 1995 and has been awarded the OBE for Services to British Nationals overseas. He works in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and told us that, “The OBE was genuinely an amazing surprise after almost a year in crisis dealing with COVID-19 overseas”. #BGSFamily #BeyondBGS
