MFL Stars Brunch

A group of the School's most dedicated and high-achieving linguists joined Mr Nelson for a special MFL-themed brunch this Thursday, replete with éclairs, petite madeleines, croissants, profiteroles and other pastries. They were: Roman from Year 7; Freya from Year 8; Niké , Year 9; Jesse, Year 10 Khadija and Zoe and Arefin from Year 11.

Miss Ingram (Head of MFL) and Miss Guest (Teacher of MFL) praised them for their stellar hard work and dedication this term, both in class and with their homework. The older students, in particular, are reaping the rewards of this effort in their mock exams.

Complete beginners as well as confident coders and designers are all welcome. The event will also provide the opportunity for children to gain confidence working alongside adults and learn more about possible careers in the fields of engineering and technology. By working together and sharing knowledge, participants will validate their digital skills, learn about teamwork and communication.
