Sixth Form visit from Bank of England economist

Sixth Form visit from Bank of England economist

Our Year 12 and 13 Sixth Form students with an interest in business and economics enjoyed a visit by Malindi Myers, the Bank of England’s Deputy Agent for South West England, this month.

Speaking about the role of the Bank of England, its history and the importance of a central bank, Malindi focused a large portion of her talk on the state of the UK economy, particularly the impact of Brexit uncertainty.

Feeding into Sexey’s careers programme, Malindi also talked to students about her route to becoming a professional economist, especially the areas that are most interesting about her job.

Commenting on the visit, Mr David Moon, Head of Business Studies said: “Thank you so much to Malindi for taking the time to visit us in school and giving us such an inspiring talk. She was incredibly generous with her time, speaking to one of our Year 13 students about Brexit for half an hour after her talk had finished. It is so important for the future of the UK that are students are engaged around these politically charged topics, so I was delighted to see them contributing.”
