"I just wanted to say a massive thank you! The Stock Market Challenge was an absolutely huge success. It has been the talk of the school. All the staff involved were incredibly impressed with the session. More importantly, the kids were totally engaged, even those who may not be when in lessons! The day was a great success." 

Simon Shaw, Teacher, Malmesbury School

"Dealing Room served as a great opportunity to reinforce many mathematical terms and concepts. Students developed an understanding of the knowledge and skills relating to a particular industry sector, with its direct relevance to the world of work."

Mark Bouckley, Assistant Headteacher, Hedingham School, Essex

“Dealing Room gave me a great insight into how markets operate and allowed me to put some of the theory from my coursework into practice.”

Dean Varley, Economics & Finance BSc, Northern Ireland

“My pupils learned how to put their skills to use in a competitive and practical setting.  Individuals within teams can put their personal attributes to use for the common good of the team”
