St Bart’s Wins Shares4Schools Regional Competition

St Bart’s Sixth Formers were delighted to find out before half term that they have come first in the regional Shares4Schools Competition. They also came fifth across the country as a whole!

St Bart’s has been participating in the Shares4Schools competition for many years. The contest began in 2004, aiming to give sixth form students a realistic experience of economics and business studies by giving them a chance to invest real money into the stock market.

The competition starts with an investment pot of £2,000. Valuable skills in team working, investment strategy and risk management are gained throughout the process.

The six winners and their teacher have been invited to attend the winners’ day event at the London Stock Exchange later this month.
