The Sky’s the Limit

Year 10 Business and Economics students are getting the ‘real feel’ for the London Stock Market. The Student Investor Competition involves teams investing £100,000 of virtual money on the London Stock Exchange. Students need to keep their portfolios healthy by following the ups and downs of the market, judging when to buy and sell in order to make a profit.

On Monday 24th September 2018, Team “ItsFreeRealEstate” comprising of Year 10 students, Oliver, Jack, Valentia and Calum were positioned at an amazing 14th position out of over 1,300 other teams in the UK.  The team had predicted that Sky shares would be an astute investment in their portfolio, in the run up to Sky’s takeover by Comcast last week.  Follow the updates HERE
