The Stock Market Challenge is an engaging event that Year 9 participated in.
The year group were split into house teams competing against each other. They had to try and make the most money from buying and selling shares on a simulated stock exchange, based on the London stock market.
Teamwork, making decisions under pressure, calculating risks and trading shares on a live stock market floor, how the stock market works, and lots more!
