Six of our Year 9 pupils travelled to Sheffield on Monday 20 May to take part in the regional final of the Translation Bee competition. All six pupils competed to a very high standard against other schools in the Northwest and Yorkshire. Sara in 9-3 was awarded 5th place for Spanish; Alekhya in 9-3 was awarded 1st place for Spanish; Aahi in 9-6 was awarded 4th place for German; Esomchi in 9-7 was awarded 1st place for German; Parnika in 9-5 was awarded 2nd place for French and Aditi was awarded 1st place for French. As a result, all six have qualified for the national final in Cambridge on 3 July. This is a tremendous achievement and the first time all of our competitors have made it through to the national final.
