After school on Wednesday, a selection of students from Year 7 and Year 8 went down to Rivington and Blackrod High School to take part in ‘The Big Book Quiz’ event. At the halfway point, we were in the top three. After a nail biting final round, our team came third overall. They narrowly missed out on a place in the final. Mrs Smith, and the rest of the English Department, were incredibly proud of our team and were blown away by their efforts.

The team consisted of Ramy Abaker (7L), Libby McKee (8S), Lola Pilling (8S), Isabel Chamberlain (8A) and Jermaine Amponsah (8A).
