In February, ten girls in Years 11-13 took part in Round 1 of the UK Linguistics Olympiad. Congratulations to Marianne P (11S) for receiving a Gold Award, and to Olivia F (11O), Clara N (S6), and Ruth M (S6) for receiving Bronze Awards.
As a recipient of a Gold Award, Marianne is now through to Round 2 of the competition, during which she will sit a (awfully long!) 3-hour paper. Due to take place on Wednesday March 17th, Round 2 is the qualifying round which will select the UK squad for the International Linguistics Olympiad in July.
Thank you to Mrs Liebrecht and Ms Paterson for coaching the girls and organising this awesome opportunity during lockdown.
Well done Olivia, Clara, and Ruth for your excellent achievements, and good luck to Marianne!
