Lancing Economics Society welcomes Roedean School

During the Lent Term our dynamic Economics Society welcomed students from Roedean School for an Olympiad-style competition. The students were split across three mixed Roedean/Lancing teams, two Lancing teams and one Roedean team. The first three rounds of questions challenged the students’ knowledge on micro and macroeconomic, as well as their knowledge of important economic players from 15th century onwards. The final two rounds increased in difficulty and required the students to use their mathematical prowess and knowledge of economic world data. Going into the final round, it remained close at the top with the mixed team in first place; however that didn’t last as Roedean succeeded in the final round winning by just two points. It was a wonderful evening of fun and learning, and a great opportunity for our students to work as a team with another school.
