Academy pupils calculate the cost to fund their future lifestyles.Vivienne Walsh from Young Enterprise and Karen Shannon, Senior Manager at Ulster Bank, asked Year 11 pupils to visualise their future lives before they showed them the hard facts and figures of running their personal finances.

Pupils looked at payslips, bank statements and explored various ways to spend and save. Covering everything from overdrafts to outgoings and savings accounts to store cards; Year 11 are armed with the information they need to start thinking about how to best manage their own money once they enter the national economy.
