The Governor of the Bank of England has visited Seven Kings to discuss the current financial issues the country faces with a group of economics and politics students.
Sir Mervyn King visited Seven Kings High School, Ley Street, Ilford for what is a rare appearance at a state school, according to deputy headteacher Clive Rosewell.
He said: “It was absolutely superb. Some of our brightest students had a unique access to someone who was involved in the biggest economic crises for a generation.
“It’s brilliant for those students going in to exams to be able to talk about what he actually told them.
