08 Jul Lord Mervyn King Visits Newham Collegiate Sixth Form Centre (The NCS) To Deliver A Student Lecture
Lord Mervyn King – Former Governor of the Bank of England – recently visited The NCS to talk about the three most important issues facing the World economy at the moment. This was an extremely special day for NCS students; Lord King remains one of the most influential people in economic and financial circles.
After his lecture, students took part in a question and answer session. His answers linked economics, politics and drew numerous comparisons with historical events. An invaluable insight for NCS students’ A Level studies; Lord King’s visit was part of our unrivalled Lecture Programme.

“What was also fascinating about Lord King’s lecture was the inside information he was able to give us about the events that led up to the financial crisis and the actions of the Bank of England in the aftermath to prevent the total collapse of UK banks.” – Kiesha
