Robbie Abbot, Lorraine James and Hannah White, all from Bancroft’s School in High Road, achieved results in the top one per cent in the country for the Certificate in Financial Studies (CeFS).

The AS-level equivalent qualification offered by leading financial education charity ifs University College, has 30,000 people enrolled on it.

Martin Flaherty, head of financial studies at Bancroft’s School, said: “This is a magnificent achievement and an indication of the value and importance that both the school and each of these students place on this qualification.”

Robbie, Lorraine and Hannah will now each be offered a £750 scholarship towards any full-time undergraduate degree programme offered by ifs University College.

The course teaches students about sources and uses of money, how to plan an effective personal budget, the use of appropriate financial products and services and the concepts and consequences of misaligned finances.
