ON FRIDAY 16 June, twelve Year 10 boys visited the Bank of England Museum. Whilst at the museum, the boys were able to hold a bar of bullion and they learnt about the Bank's history and security features in the design of both bank notes and coins. Most importantly, for their Business syllabus, they also learnt about the tools the Bank has at its disposal to control the economy, namely controlling interest rates and the use of Quantitative Easing. The day's success was in no short measure due to the boys' impeccable performance, their engagement with the worksheets provided and their ability to open a safe, which was rewarded with the prize of a Bank of England pen!
