Over the last few months, all Sir William Romney Y7 students have been taking part in the National Languages Spelling Bee competition. As the school’s champions, Chandra, Kitty and Marjiya went on to represent the school at last night’s regional finals.

They had to spell as many French words as possible in under one minute. The words are randomly selected from a list of 150 words. The competition was grueling, having to face many schools from the entire South West.

Although they did not progress to the Cambridge University national finals, Chandra, Kitty and Marjiya gave their best performance on the night and came close! We are so proud of them!

Our Y8 champions (Iola and Lucie ) will be taking on the Spanish Translation Bee competition regional finals in Westminster University in June. We can’t wait to see how well they do!
