"Our students gained in self-confidence from reaching the final of this prestigious competition.  It also gave them a taste of the real world of finance."

Iolo Jones, Psychology Teacher, Ysgol Gyfun Glantaf

We used Trading Floor for an enterprise day which involved all years on a carousel basis. The students absolutely loved it - the competition between groups was immense!  The high quality resources gives the game a professional look and makes the students think it is far more realistic.  It gives students a valuable application of Maths in the real world.

Simon Hetherington, Head of Mathematics, Al Yasmina School

“The hall was a hive of activity as students watched the screens with nervous anticipation. Cries of joy and pain could be heard throughout the college as share prices rose and fell. This was a fantastic challenge.”

Ralph Plummer, Assistant Head, Business & Enterprise, St. Joseph's Catholic College, Swindon

“Trading Floor and Dealing Room show our students how their maths skills are needed and can be applied in the real world.”

Dermot Gallagher, Head of Business Studies, St. Brigidís College
