Three pupils in Year 7 competed at the Regional Final of the Spanish Spelling Bee. Adifah Haffeji, Olivia Melling and Du’a Qedwai learned 150 Spanish words to compete and Adifah ultimately came second, winning her a place in the National Final.

During the competition, words were said in English and the girls both translated the words into Spanish and spelled them out using the Spanish alphabet. Their scores were based on how many words they could spell in a minute.

The organiser of the competition said that 3,853 participants entered the North West Spelling Bee, and the Bolton School girls were among just 68 who competed in the Regional Final!

Following her regional success, Adifah goes forward to the National Final, which will be held on Monday 1 July at Cambridge University.
