After months of stock picking, twelve Sixth Form pupils have been told they have earned places in the semi final of the Student Investor Challenge. Of the 23,540 students worldwide in 5,885 teams from 856 schools who traded in the first round, three PGS teams have made it to the semi-final!

The Student Investor Challenge, run by The London Institute of Banking & Finance, challenges school teams to invest virtual money on the London Stock Exchange and trade stocks and shares to make a profit. All the semi-final pupils are part of the Economics & Business Department’s popular Stock Market Club run by PGS teacher and retired fund manager Paul Fisher, all fuelled on a diet of Krispy Kremes and regular games of Spoof!
