Student Investor Challenge

Congratulations to one of our Shares Competition teams comprising Katie Laycock, Bethany Brookes, Charlie Taylor and Jack Taylor, who made it through to the semi-finals stage of the competiton.

They competed with 499 other teams over a four-week period in the semi-finals; mainly made up of Year 12 and 13 students.  Each Monday the teams were presented with the names of several companies and students had to use their skills, knowledge and judgement to predict the price of each share at the close of business that week.

We are delighted that our students were placed 48th out of the 500 teams that competed in the semi-final.  This is a superb achievement and all the more amazing when you think that the team actually placed 48th out of over 6,500 teams that competed nationally; again the vast majority of them being 6th Formers.
