KIDS got the inside story on the world of high finance and how London’s Docklands developed into one of the world’s richest financial centres.
They also did a character re-enactment (pictured) of the tale of a docker’s son who became a millionaire trader—only to lose his fortune—as part of a museum study day.
Pupils from Langdon Park Secondary at Poplar, in London’s East End, went on a study day at the Museum of London Docklands looking at money management and its role in society.

The visit with two other schools, Deptford Green in south-east London and Northease Manor in Sussex, included a challenge to plan and cost a corporate event to be held at the museum at Canary Wharf’s West India Quay.
The kids then trooped off to Citigroup’s Canary Wharf HQ nearby to see the trading floor where millions are bought and sold every day.
