The School: Malmesbury Primary School

Malmesbury Primary School in Morden have been working with Enabling Enterprise over the past two years. Students have been working hard on developing their skills, having already worked together to solve a mystery on the Crime Scene Investigation Challenge Day this term.

The Business: Metro Bank Croydon

Metro Bank is Britain’s first new high street bank in over 100 years. They offer unique retail banking focused on the customer, which suited our students perfectly for today’s challenge. With over 35 stores in London, Metro Bank aims to have 150 stores by 2020. Let’s see how their volunteers inspired our budding entrepreneurs with top tips about investment management.

The Challenge: Invest for Success

After quizzing a volunteer from Metro Bank and learning more about the world of banking, the group of ten Year 4 students were ready to get to grips with their challenge: deciding where to invest the life savings of their customers, Mr and Mrs Green! Students listened carefully to a discussion about risk to help them make decisions as a team about the best investments to make.

The Results:

Thoughtful decision making and outstanding team discussion paid off as each team made impressive returns for their customers. They then had the chance to present back to the Metro Bank volunteer and their teachers. The adults supporting the day were particularly impressed with students, who used new vocabulary they had learnt during the day with confidence in their presentations.

What they said:

  • “It’s been an excellent day, they’ve enjoyed it so much” – Teacher, Malmesbury Primary School
  • “I’ve been amazed by how much they have learnt in a day; their presentations were so great” – Volunteer, Metro Bank
  • “I want to work somewhere like this when I grow up, I like having customers!” – Student, Malmesbury Primary School

Thanks to Metro Bank for such a great trip day, and to Year 4 from Malmesbury Primary School for coming along.
