Mortgage Lessons with Mortage 1st
A BIG thankyou to Lisa Stones and Sarah Cave from Mortgage 1st, for delivering some of our Year 9 maths lessons.
It was not the normal lessons though, the topic was mortgages! It was great to see how maths links with lots of careers, particularly finance. Students really got involved by calculating mortgage repayments, working out the money you can borrow depending on your earnings and learning about credit scores. The questions from students were brilliant; "What happens if you have a mortgage and you die?" "How old do you have to be to get a mortgage?" "Why do you need to pay a deposit?" The lessons really did link curriculum to careers.
