Connor (2nd from left) and the St. Mary's teamFormer Rhyddings student Connor Mellor recently took part in the Bank of England’s Target Two Point Zero competition.

Connor, along with three other St Mary’s College students, delivered a 15 minute presentation focusing on a variety of economic data showing the current state of the UK economy and what they felt the Bank of England should do with interest rates.

Following their presentation, the team faced demanding questions from the Bank of England’s agents in the North West and an analyst from London. They performed excellently and gave answers well above the A-Level standard.

We are proud of Connor and wish him all the best in his future endeavours!
