From 7th -11th November, our Year 9 and 10 students were looking to become the next MI5 of Cheney by taking part in the GCHQ National Language Competition, where the winning team from across the UK would receive a trophy from GCHQ Director Sir Jeremy Fleming!
There was a real buzz in Languages, as teams of up to 4 students in Years 9 and 10 were rushing to get to the chromebooks before school, at break, at lunch and even after school to crack as many codes as possible throughout the week!
A huge well done to everyone who took part and many congratulations to all our winning teams. There was fierce competition all week with around 2000 teams from more than 600 schools across the UK putting their language skills to the test and battling it out for the top spots on the national leaderboard. It was a closely fought race right up to the very end with teams pulling out all the stops to crack those codes and solve those language puzzles!
Although we didn't make it to the podium, we are extremely prouds of our Year 9 and 10 students who took part and spent most of last week up in Languages!
Our results out of 2000 teams:
- in the 547th place: Isla S, Amelie F, Elsa R
- in the 237th place: Rachel R, Fiona S, Lara WJ, Esther S
