BASE National Finalists for third year!

Yet again our Year 12 Economics and Business students have become BASE competition regional heat champions and gained a place at the National Final. BASE is ICAEW’s National Business and Accounting competition for students in school or college aged 16-19. It provides a unique and exciting experience, where students are able to 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. The team of six - Sam Cole, Oliver Dudlyke, Sam Fraser, Annabel Manley, Jack Sherer-Clarke and Alisha Wala - successfully fought off 17 other teams at the Bristol heat of BASE held at the University of South West of England on Tuesday this week. They will attend the National Final in Birmingham on 25 June.
