Student Investor Challenge Update

Team Phoenix had a great time taking part in the Student Investor challenge. After reaching 250th place at their peak in the competition, they ended up finishing in 350th place out of 5000+ teams. This was just out of the qualifying places, as just the top 250 qualified. Year 11 team member Yasmin said “We had to buy and sell shares on the stock exchange over the course of 4 months. This experience has allowed us to gain an insight into the real world of business outside of the classroom.  We even beat our teacher, Mr Dawson, who finished in 2500th place!  Student investor has given each of us the skills needed for our future business careers”. Business Studies Teacher Mr Dawson said “I am really proud of the team’s commitment to this challenge and for placing so highly. Very well done”.
