Pupils from eight schools in the East Midlands took part in the regional final of a modern foreign language spelling bee at Corby Business Academy.

They travelled to the school from Stamford, Spalding, Derby, Leicester and Lincoln for the Routes Into Languages event.

A team of four students and one reserve, made up of Courtney Smith, Matthew Croydon, Rebecca Sawford, Joshua Rogers and Lewis Viner, represented Corby Business Academy.

Pupils had to spell words in French, Spanish and German.

The school’s director of modern languages, Karen Turney, said: “It was a great honour to host the regional finals at Corby Business Academy for the second year running.

“The performances by all the students who took part were extremely impressive.”
