Two teams of economics and business studies students from Colyton Grammar School took the top two places in a recent competition.

They finished winners and runners up in the local heat of the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales (ICAEW) Business, Accounting and Skills Education contest at Sandy Park, near Exeter.

Colyton’s two Year 13 teams competed against 15 other schools from the area, impressing professionals in the field with a presentation of their recommendations for a given ‘business scenario’.

The winners now go on to the national final which takes place in Birmingham this June, to compete against 46 other teams.

The competition aims to develop employability skills and give students aged 16-19 an idea of what being an ICAEW chartered accountant is like.

The teams’ business studies teacher Gareth Williams, said: “This was a great achievement for both teams and a tribute to their commitment.”

Members of the winning team - Jake Hallam, Hannah Neale, Jonty Symonds, Sophia Lovett and Harry Williams - admitted it had been “a struggle” but they were really looking forward to attending the final at the Hilton Hotel in the summer.
