‘Centre of Excellence’ in delivering financial education by Young Enterprise


Last week, Central Foundation was awarded the ‘Centre of Excellence’ status in delivering financial education by Young Enterprise.

A Centre of Excellence is an educational centre that has embraced and embedded financial education into their vision, ethos and curriculum. This results in young people gaining the knowledge, skills and confidence to be able to make informed and independent financial decisions.

Financial Capability is a key life skill and a as a school, we recognise the importance of all young people having the ability, knowledge and confidence to manage their money well, now and in the future … We believe that regardless of background or income level, financially informed young adults are better able to take control of their circumstances and improve their quality of life.

Central Foundation Boys' School's Vision Statement

We have embedded a cross curricular approach to teaching financial education across all years groups (from Year 7 to Year 13), with a 51% Increase in financial topics covered across the KS3 curriculum and 23 staff members trained at delivering financial education.

The School has clearly demonstrated that we are providing practical, effective and sustainable financial education for the young people, above and beyond the required award criteria.
