A number of Preparatory School pupils have moved one step closer to completing a special spelling challenge.
Staff devised a new spelling challenge for pupils last year, which has three different levels each with 110 words.
The pupils have been encouraged to work towards their incremental targets of Gold, Silver and Bronze within each stage, and a host of certificates have already been issued as a result of their hard work since the initiative began.
So far Gabriele Subkovaite Lily Davies, George Watkins and Jonathan Osbourne are the only pupils to have completed the award.
This week saw Violet Roberts and Gracie Tavernor achieve their Stage Two Silver Award, while Rana Abou-Samra struck Gold at the same level.
There was further success in the form of Keira Luke and Zack Coverley, who are now just two steps away from their target after success in their Stage Three Bronze assessment.
Deputy Head Alison Hind, who started the scheme, said: “This challenge is something that has really inspired our pupils, and it is fantastic to see that the first pupils have completed the three stages.
“All our pupils are working so hard and it has really caught their imagination, something that is bringing with it fantastic results on a consistent basis.
“Congratulations to Rana, Violet, Gracie, Zack and Keira for their excellent efforts so far.”
