Students at University Academy Holbeach will soon be taught about money and personal finance after being chosen to become a Centre of Excellence in financial education.
The announcement is the result of a ground-breaking partnership between the UK’s leading financial education charity pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group) and Santander.
It means that the academy, in Park Road, Holbeach, will work with pfeg’s educational specialists to integrate the teaching of personal finance into the school curriculum.
The school, one of 40 across the country set to benefit from the programme, will also share its new expertise with other schools in the local area.
Steve Baragwanath, principal of University Academy Holbeach, said: “We are proud to offer our students a broad education that includes preparing them with the life skills they will need to achieve their aspirations. Managing money and making decisions about your personal finance are skills that we all need every day – and that’s why we are delighted to be taking part in this programme.”
