Our business-savvy students have beaten off competition from fourteen other local teams to win the Chester heat of ICAEW’s national business and accounting competition, BASE.
The teams found out what it was like to walk in the shoes of finance professionals, as they put together strategic business advice for a real life organisation and delivered this to their board of directors, just like chartered accountants.
Our school impressed the panel of judges and we will now go to the National Final in June.
Melanie Christie, ICAEW North West, Regional Director said: “I was really impressed with the performance and strategic thinking of The King’s School. These budding business advisors looked beyond the numbers and they also showed they had an excellent instinct for business and ethics in order to give well-rounded advice. Congratulations to all the teams who took part. I expect I’ll be seeing more of these young people in leading business roles in the future.”
