Spelling Bee Final at Sheffield Hallam

On Tuesday 30th April 2019 our Spelling Bee finalists visited Sheffield Hallam to compete in the Regional final.

The students performed excellently and despite being very nervous placed 5th, 8th and 9th out a whopping 1916 students!

This year the students have participated in the Spelling Bee as an extracurricular club which has taken huge dedication to learn 150 words in their own time and also to practise during their breaks throughout the week. This shows huge dedication to their learning. 

The students were such a credit to our school and were extremely encouraging to other contestants by cheering them on, complementing them and congratulating them on their success. Adults commented on how cheerful, polite and friendly our girls were. They were really genuinely pleased for the winners and were desperate to have another go! They are already asking about if they can take part in heat eight. A pleasure to watch them compete.

Well done to the students who took part!
