The Real Game

Y8 Students learn real life skills

Year 8 students enjoyed taking part in the Real Game on Tuesday morning and had an insight into careers, lifestyle choices and working life.

The project involved both team and independent work to complete tasks including budgeting for day-to-day expenses taking into account tax and savings and their monthly income.


The Real Game is a lifestyle learning resource which incorporates elements of careers education and guidance, citizenship and enterprise activities in a series of fun educational activities.


The students took home their work at the end of the day to discuss the project with their parents.
