Visit to the Bank of England

Mr Rose and Mrs Lawson-Johnson accompanied the first Brooke Weston trip to the London Metal Exchange and the Bank of England. At the Bank of England they attended a talk on monetary policy, financial policy and the history of the bank. They also had the opportunity to hold a gold bar worth £300,000 and to try simulations of managing the economy. The students behaved impeccably and asked some very pertinent questions about the role of the bank.

At the London Metal Exchange the group observed one of the last examples of 'Open Cry' trading and observed the forces of supply and demand in action. The visit was a good introduction to the importance of the City to our economy.

Thomas Brogden said: 'It was very useful and insightful preparation for the second year of Economics and Business Studies.'

Sophie Scoular said: 'I had a lovely time, it was a very enjoyable visit.'

Simran Kang said: 'We should definitely do this again.'
