'BTEC Business students (accompanied by seven Fourth Form students) spent a very informative day in the City of London on Wednesday 8 June.
For many this was their first visit to the Square Mile. Once the formalities of the City had been explained the students eagerly awaited their meeting on the 34th floor of The Gherkin. A huge 'thank you' goes to Andy Legg of Standard Life Investments for taking time out of his busy schedule to present to the students about Investments and careers within the industry. Following a much needed rest near the Tower of London, the day was finished with a presentation in the Bank of England, giving students an insight into the role of the Bank and its influence over monetary policy.'
