Six Year 12 students have won the regional heat of the ICAEW BASE National Business and Accounting competition at Exeter Racecourse.

Competing against thirteen other schools including Blundell’s, Plymouth College and Truro School, the team won through to the regional final, completing their presentation with one second to spare.

BASE is ICAEW’s National Business and Accounting competition for students in school or college aged 16-19, in which students engage in a business challenge that enables them to develop key employability skills and understand what it’s like to be an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.

This is the third year in a row that a Colyton team has won the regional heat.

Team member Keir L (16), said: “It was a challenging but thoroughly enjoyable event that we are incredibly pleased to have won.”

The six students must now wait until 30 June next year to compete in the national finals in Birmingham, against fifty other regional winners from across the UK.
