Students Through to National Final of Investment Competition
Four of our Post 16 students, Alfie, Will, Scott and Chris, have been taking part in the Student Investor Challenge and have made it all the way through to the finals in London on May 3rd.
In the UK wide investment game for students, teams of four invest virtual money on the stock market, aiming to achieve the best returns.
First Prize is an all-expenses paid educational trip to New York for the winning team and their teacher. They also win £2,000 prize money for their school and £200 for each team member. The trip to New York will include excursions to the financial district as well as some of the famous landmarks.
The second placed team in the challenge wins £1,500 for their school and £150 for each team member and the third placed team wins £1,000 for their school and £100 for each team member.
Well done to all four boys and thank you to Mr Davis for his continued support and guidance of the teams.
