Guildhouse School is home to the first Bloomberg Lab in a high school in Europe

All our students have access to the Bloomberg Terminals® and are encouraged to take the Bloomberg Market Concepts Qualification (BMC) which offers students an unparalleled introduction to financial markets that they would not normally receive until studying at university.

Every Guildhouse student, irrespective of programme or subjects, will have the opportunity to earn the BMC qualification.

Over 250 Guildhouse students have achieved the BMC qualification.
