On Tuesday 10th June nine of our Able Linguists in Year 8 were accompanied by Mr Leggatt, to a County-wide event held at the University of Southampton.

On Tuesday 10th June nine of our Able Linguists in Year 8 were accompanied by Mr Leggatt, to a County-wide event held at the University of Southampton. The aim of the day was to promote the importance of learning a language and part of the event was to undertake a challenge in French, German or Spanish.

Our students had to work with other students from schools across Hampshire to design a new fair trade food product in their respective languages. Their ideas were presented through posters which were judged by university staff. In the afternoon our students had the opportunity to learn a completely new language, the choice ranged from Chinese to Russian.

In the final session of the day winners of the poster competition were announced and we are extremely proud to say that Henry Beaufort had winners in the German category (Ben Firrell and Nathan Rabley) and the French category (Maya Berglin). We were the only school to have winners in more than one category. It was a very productive and enjoyable day and the students were a credit to the school and themselves.
