Centre of Excellence for Financial Education

Centre of Excellence for Financial Education

Aylsham High School is now in their second year of being a centre of excellence for financial education and the credit system introduced last year has already improved. The idea was to simulate a bank where the students can earn credits, save them up and then spend them on their chosen reward. To ensure students learn to have a good work ethic in the process, we decided to reward credits for having good attendance, working effectively in lessons, producing an outstanding piece of work and by giving up their own time to help out the school. Many students have been saving their credits to spend them on the end of year BBQ. In previous years this was funded by the generosity of the Aylsham community and we at Aylsham High School just want to thank Wrights Coaches, RAK Accountancy, Clear View Financial and The Conservatory for their kind donations. We are always looking for new sponsors if you would be interested in sponsoring this event or future rewards events please contact twiseman@aylshamhigh.norfolk.sch.uk we have already expanded the rewards to include access to the schools sporting facilities and allowing year 11 students to win a free prom ticket.  We are hoping to have Christmas party in December where students can trade in their credits to join this event.  We would like to say a huge thank you to Sue & Giles Margarson and David whom support the BBQ each year.
