SMC 2018 13

The Stock Market Challenge, now in its 7th year, brings year 12 students from across the UK together to trade against each other on a simulated stock market using the ICMA Centre’s unique dealing room facilities.

This year Peter Symonds College were joined by Wilmington Grammar School for Boys, The Henley College, Woking College, The Willink School, The Abbey School, Gravesend Grammar School, Cheam High School, Charters School, Langley Grammar School, Hammersmith Academy and a number of independent students.

Coming in a close second with a silver award was Langley Grammar school, followed by Gravesend Grammar School with the bronze award.
