Three of our very talented linguists performed superbly in the Anthea Bell Prize Young Translator 2021 competition. 

The competition itself took place in June 2021 and was organised by Queen's College, Oxford, for secondary school pupils in the UK. Students were required to translate a text from the language they are studying into English. 

In the Chinese Level 4 (for Year 12 and 13 pupils) competition, Year 12 pupil Rishi Massey was the overall national runner-up, and Usman Hafiz, also in Year 12, won a Commendation. 

In the Chinese Level 3 (for Year 10 and 11 pupils), Daniel Burns, in Year 10, was the overall North West winner. 

Competing against schools from all over the country, the boys performed fantastically and thoroughly deserve these accolades.
