Aldenham School students triumph in Bank of England and The Times' Target Two Point Zero competition

Watford Observer: Aldenham students triumph in national competition Aldenham students triumph in national competition

Students from Aldenham School recently addressed issues surrounding the country’s economic recovery as part of a national competition.

The students took part in a challenge set by the Bank of England and The Times newspaper called Target Two Point Zero - which involved 302 teams from across the UK debating about the Government’s economic policy.

During the regional heats, teams were asked to analyse UK and global economic statistics and assess the impact the date would have on the economic outlook.

The contestants then had to judge if the bank’s present policy is appropriate, or if it needs changing to meet the Government’s inflation target of 2%.

Aldenham School’s team, captained by Owen Collier, won the regional stage of the event last week at the DeVere Hotel in Waltham Cross.

The winners of each regional heat will now go on to the area finals stage, which is set to be held early next year, with the grand final scheduled for March 28.
