During the half term break, three of our year 12 economics students were given the chance to spend a day in London learning about the finance industry from leading professionals.

Following a rigorous application process, Grace Imeson-Wood (Kinver High School), Charlotte Knight (North Bromsgrove High School) and Huw Morrey (North Bromsgrove High School) were selected to participate in the event run by the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment and Investment 2020. The students took part in team-building tasks, workshops and networking activities which enabled them to gain valuable contacts within the finance industry.

All three students found the day to be a valuable experience – Grace described the event as "an amazing opportunity" and Charlotte said she was "overwhelmed with thanks for allowing me to attend the event".
