Witham: Kids taught how to manage their finances
An academy is leading the way in teaching schoolchildren to get their finances in order.
Children as young as 12 at Maltings Academy, in Spinks Lane, Witham, have taken a GCSE course in finance - three years early.

The course is part of the academy’s extended enterprise learning curriculum.
