The Schools: Audley Primary School

In their fifth year with Enabling Enterprise, Audley Primary School are a true EE Partner school and the Year 3 and 4 pupils arrived at Lex Autolease ready to show their knowledge of the enterprise skills. Despite the new surroundings the children began the day with confidence which only increased throughout this fast-paced enterprise challenge!

The Business: Lex Autolease, Birmingham

Part of the Lloyds Banking Group, Lex Autolease is the UK’s leading fleet management specialist. Lex Autolease provide low cost car & vehicle leasing for businesses.

The Challenge: Trading Triumphs

Working in a team, the Year 3 and 4 pupils from Audley Primary School were entrusted with a client’s money. They decided how to invest through reading and Listening Carefully to information about the four companies that they could possibly invest in. Breaking news periodically affected their investments, as share prices grew and fell. After three trades, each team presented their portfolio to the other teams and our volunteer judges from Lex Autolease.

The Results:

All of the children quickly rose to the challenge. United by their Aiming High skills and desire to make the most money for their client, Dr Taylor, the teams listened carefully, shared ideas and gathered consensus before making investments. As a result, the final presentations revealed cohesive teams of successful investors that had all made huge positive returns on their client’s initial investment.
