Year 12 took part in a Keep the Cash game on Tuesday 25 June, to help them manage their own money as leaving school and independent life are on the horizon.

Not all managed to convince employers or bank managers, but they learnt a lot about what lies ahead.

Well done to the winning team, captained by Waqas Mehmood, who rather worryingly named themselves ‘The Fraudsters’…
