A spelling bee is a competition in which contestants are asked to spell a broad selection of words, usually with a varying degree of difficulty.

This year’s competition for Year 7 was bigger and better than ever. It was therefore appropriate that the expanded format was matched by a fierce competition. The final results saw:

4th place – Castle

3rd place – Priory

2nd place – Manor

1st place – Abbey

We are grateful to Mrs Evans for her organisation of the event and to all of the staff who came to support. Here are some of the comments made by participants and audience members to sum up their thoughts:

Though the competition was intense and nerve-wracking, I enjoyed taking part in it and I’m proud of how far I managed to get. Bring on next year’s Spelling Bee!

I really enjoyed taking part in the Spelling Bee, even though near the end the words got quite difficult! I’m super happy that I won!
