The Deputy Governor of the Bank of England, Charles Bean, presented them with the Challenge Trophy and a cheque for £10,000 for the school. Speaking at the presentation the Deputy Governor, who chaired the judging panel, said: "We have enjoyed some excellent presentations today. The teams have shown an impressive grasp of the key economic issues facing the MPC and have presented the material in fresh and innovative ways, and with great enthusiasm. I hope this experience has brought economics to life for the students and also demonstrated the uncertainty surrounding policy making."
