After winning the 2019 UK Student Investor Challenge, four students from Colyton Grammar School travelled to New York to visit the New York Stock Exchange and help celebrate Anaplan plc's first year listing anniversary at the opening bell at 9am (EST) live from Wall Street. It was then on to Bloomburg's on Lexington Avenue for an exclusive tour of their New York HQ.

These students were only 14 years old when they fended off almost 40,000 other students to win. Colyton Grammar School managed an unprecedented 1-2 finish in this competition. Their visit gained media coverage and appeared on CNBC, Asset TV and BBC One (South West) today (available to view until 18.00 today 15/10/19). https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m0009gk7/spotlight-evening-news-14102019

What an achievement for our students and well done to their teacher Mr Shields!
