We are thrilled to share that Ashley Reeves from Four Oaks Financial Services has returned to our school to deliver a comprehensive assembly to our Year 10 pupils this morning.
After the insightful sessions with our Year 11 pupils last week, Ashley is back to provide our Year 10 cohort with crucial financial advice that will empower them for the future. In this session, he shed light on essential topics such as income tax, national insurance, and other potential deductions, including insights into student loans and workplace pension contributions.
Ashley also delved into the realm of financial fitness, cautioning against common pitfalls that lead to debt and emphasising the significance of maintaining a positive credit rating.
Miss G Clarke, Head of Year 10, expressed her enthusiasm, stating, “The session with Ashley was incredibly informative and interesting. It has set the stage for our pupils’ personal development by equipping them with the financial education they will undoubtedly need in the future.”
Special shoutout to Noah and Yan (Pictured), who actively participated by asking informative questions throughout the session. They shared, “We didn’t know much about finances before, but now we feel more confident about managing our money when we’re older.”
We believe that fostering financial literacy is a key aspect of preparing our pupils for success beyond the classroom, and we are grateful for the expertise and insights Ashley brings to our school community.
