Dragon in the Attic is a mental health app centred on anti-bullying ideas. It is a fun, re-playable, game for 8 - 12 year old boys and girls about health and wellbeing choices which give players greater awareness and confidence, by getting kids to look after a dragon in an attic. Note: to play, users must first register. Wakefield wellbeing Ltd, a network of GP practices, collects and manages the data and assures the user’s privacy.

Reviewer: Horbury Primary School and West Wakefield Health & Wellbeing Ltd.
Review: Dragon in the Attic was the winner of a local school competition, where “one hundred Year 6 students were involved in the project, creating 20 initial concepts that were shortlisted to six with the help of some peer to peer judging and feedback from their Skype in the Classroom mentors and local GPs. The students presented their health app concepts to a panel of ‘Dragon’s Den’ style judges. Dragon in the Attic was the winning app concept and presented by the winning team from Horbury Primary School.”

Reviewer: Jenni Scott, ICT teacher at Horbury Primary school
Review: “We are incredibly proud of all our students today, who have worked very hard and thought carefully about what health apps would most help and interest them. As much as we have all learnt new coding skills through being involved in this competition, more importantly the students have learnt some invaluable life skills too that will stay with them forever.“ “It was such a fantastic day, and the culmination of a great project.  We can’t thank West Wakefield, Microsoft and Rare Studios enough.”
