Over 50 Year 9 pupils have successfully completed the London Institute of Banking and Finance Award in Personal Finance. Pupils have been studying the award designed to equip them with the knowledge and skills to understand the basis of money management and financial capability. Pupils gained awareness of the influences on how we spend or save money, and of the tools available to become competent at financial management.
The school introduced the programme as a way of developing important skills across the middle school curriculum in order to provide a base for successful financial decision-making.
Head of Business Stephen Mullock said, "Since the introduction of the course as an enrichment opportunity within the Year 9 curriculum, the focus and dedication the pupils have shown to the course has been outstanding. The nature of the course and the various topics covered around the world of finance and money management has led to a sustained uptake in the IGCSE Business Course and A level Business in the Sixth Form".
