Congratulations to our outstanding S4 linguists (Dominic Dakin, Rafal Faraj, Oliver Flint, Jack Green, William Kerry and Adam Lashen) who won the GCHQ led challenge day hosted by Oundle School. The team used their language skills to combat security threats in a complex task involving code-breaking, transcribing and analysis. In a tough field, the boys fought off nine other teams to take first place and the well-deserved prize – a day at Bletchley Park!
The Intellectual Curiosity club at the Prep School goes from strength to strength under the guidance of Deputy Head, Mr Leighton. The boys are encouraged to explore anything and everything, from the mundane to the preposterous, mathematical, scientific, artistic, philosophical or just topical. He recently wrote an article about the benefits of the club, which has been published in Prep School Magazine.

Harriet Freeman, who is studying Ancient Greek in the U6, has won the Omnibus Sam Hood Prize for her creative translation of a passage from Euripides' Bacchae. A very close runner-up was Harvey Cao, also in U6, with his translation of a Latin passage from Cicero's speech Against Catiline.
