The Melton Building Society is sponsoring a financial education programme for Year 7 and 8 students at Long Field Academy.

The programme is being delivered by finance and education specialist, Wize Up.

Assistant principal at Long Field, Craig Palmer, said: “Teaching our students about managing their personal finances is an important part of our curriculum and we’re delighted the Melton Building Society is helping us to achieve this.”

At the introduction of the programme to the first group of students Martin Reason, chief executive of the Melton Building Society, said: “The Society is committed to enabling young people to gain the skills and knowledge they need to manage their money. It’s great to have aspirations in life and if you need money to realise those dreams, it’s important to understand how to budget.”
