Novus supports successful school banking project

  • 15 Mar 2017

Novus Property Solutions has played a significant part in the successful launch of a banking project at a secondary school in Stoke-on-Trent.

Thirstley Hough Academy has opened its own bank and Novus constructed the school’s new on-site facility. The bank is situated in a disused area of the school, and was constructed in just five days. 

The Hanley Economic Building Society is also supporting the project by teaching students the valuable life skill of managing their own money. 

Pupils have the opportunity to open their own Thirstley Dollars account and can manage it online with Novus chairman, Stuart Seddon, donating £1 to each student who does so.

The project is just one of Novus’ many collaborates with the academy as part of their Business Class scheme partnership. 

Marketing manager at Novus Property Solutions, Sophie Seddon said Thirstley Dollars is a great way for students to learn how to manage money and will play a vital role in arming them with financial skills. 

Project co-ordinator Chris Dillon, Thistley Hough’s director of mathematics said that helping students to develop their understanding of the world of finance is a vital part of the work with the academy and the banking project is proving very popular. He also adds that Novus played a huge role int he bank’s success and is grateful for its continued support.
