Each participating school and college is provided with a free site licence of the Global Investor simulation games, Finance Lab, and Dealing Room.

“We’ve had some really positive feedback about the Stock Market Challenge from our Year 11 students. A lot of them said it was the best day of their school career!”

Max Morton, Head of Enterprise, Writhlington School

"The interactivity and excitement of Trading Floor enabled us to engage with Year 6 pupils from our feeder schools and give them an experience that would help introduce subjects and themes they will explore in Year 7.  The event was a great success."

Rob Wood, Director of Business and Enterprise, The Wellington Academy, Wiltshire

"Dealing Room introduces our pupils to the excitement of numbers, and the importance of the decimal point! Also, to a world of which they have little knowledge, but which is having a major effect on their lives."

Sarah Hodnett, Lead Academic Tutor, Maths, John Madejski Academy, Reading

"This is a fabulous Maths tool.  It supports classroom teaching and it is invaluable as an STEM enrichment activity."

William Mackay, Maths Teacher, Leith Academy
