Ashmole Academy

Our Students Come Third in 2017 Student Investor Challenge 

Ashmole Academy students finished 3rd in the 2017 Student Investor Challenge, thereby outperforming more than 40,000 students.


Four students from Ashmole Academy have outperformed more than 40,000 students across the UK to finish in third place in the 2017 Student Investor Challenge.

The “Gordon Gecko” team consisting of sixth formers Rahul Ashra, Aliaksei Kuratau, Beng Ren Siew and Hannah Emsley performed exceptionally well in a tense final against seven other teams, where they outperformed the market in several live trading simulations, before delivering a compelling presentation on currency exchange to a panel of business experts. The team have won £1,000 for their school and £100 each for themselves.

A fantastic achievement.
