Back in October all of Year 7 took part in the 'Routes into Languages' Spelling Bee. They had to learn 50 words and be able to spell them using the French or German alphabet. The winners in Year 7 (Ben Smith, Bill Read and Phoebe Rockett) learnt a further 100 words and went through to a Regional Final at Brighton University on 20th April 2016 where they competed with over 100 schools. Bill got to the semi-final stage and Phoebe came 4th overall, winning a place in the national final at University of Cambridge in July.
Congratulations everyone who took part, in particular to Ben Smith, Bill Read, and to Phoebe Rockett who got through to the next round.
