On Monday 9th July 2018, Year 7 students were involved in a Careers and Enterprise Workshop; The Trading Game.
The Trading Game is a fast paced and lively enterprise activity, delivered by staff from NYBEP, allowing students to get involved in the stock market.
Students bought and sold shares, using a ‘Trading Pit’, which was made up of 4 of our top year 7 mathematicians. All students had an important role within their team, which saw them move around the hall accessing the Trading Pit, information sheets and news alerts etc. Year 7 students had a fantastic morning, learning about the world of business and the stock market, whilst also developing their teamwork, communication, finance/maths, decision making and self-management skills.
A huge thank you goes to Sharon, Sam and Andrew form NYBEP, as well as Natalie from GCHQ, who have all played an important role in our mission to meet the Gatsby Benchmarks.
Well done also to all Year 7 students, who once again have excelled themselves.
