England Inter-schools Events

The events

Your team of five Year 10 students will be competing against other schools during a session of simulated trading on the financial markets, making decisions under pressure, taking calculated risks and experiencing the excitement of the trading floor.

This enjoyable and rewarding challenge will give your students an insight into career opportunities within the financial services sector and help them develop important skills such as communication, problem-solving and working with others.

The resource

All participating schools will be given free use of the Global Investor Simulations - Finance Lab, Dealing Room and Trading Floor – for the year.  The resource licence has been sponsored by HSBC.

The resource has applications for 14-19-year-olds in Applied Maths, STEM, Business Studies and Economics so schools should find it to be a valuable asset across the curriculum. 

Subject areas supported

Applied Maths, STEM, Business Studies, Economics, Key Skills, Financial Capability, Enterprise, and Work-related Learning.

A message from HSBC

Sustainability at HSBC is about our long-term contribution: how we value our employees, help customers realise their ambitions in life and manage our environmental impact. It is also about investing in the communities we serve. We are pleased to be working with schools and associated with such a worthwhile project as Stock Market Challenge.

“Pupils got to apply their learning to a practical situation with no teacher direction, compelling them to work as a team and take responsibility for the roles they were assigned.”

Eoghan Barr, ICT Teacher, St. Columbís College

“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 allowed my pupils to experience proper team working, they learned how to focus for a sustained period, and they saw how Maths can be relevant and real."

Catherine Irvine, Maths Teacher, Edinburgh Steiner School

"Dealing Room gave my students an opportunity to apply their Maths skills in a practical situation and to see the importance of team work."

Kate Pettifer, Economics Teacher, Merchiston Castle School
