Pupils experienced what it would be like to work for a top firm in the city last week on a special day dedicated to raising aspirations.

Youngsters from both Broadford Primary School, Faringdon Avenue, Harold Hill, and Mead Primary School, Amersham Road, Harold Hill visited Bloomberg – which provides business data and analysis.

They were given a tour of the offices in City of London and impressed staff with their knowledge about the company.

Jacob Owsley, 10, said: “Bloomberg allows people all over the world to get facts and figures about the stock market so that they can buy and sell shares at the right prices.

“If you have the right information at the right time you are more likely to be successful.”

Executive headteacher, Malcolm Drakes said the visit was the chance to show children that their education has the power to take them from Harold Hill to a city board room.
