At Cambridge finals’ day our senior teams were fourth and fifth in the UK & Ireland out of 650 entries. Many congratulations to Isabel Murray, Freya Wilson (VII), Anika Sharma and Antonia Ruddle (VIII). This is our best performance at one of the ‘majors’, although we had a frantic search for a taxi ride to Cambridge when trains were inconveniently cancelled. Freya and Bella Forristal (VII) are regional champions in the ESU Mace, placing them in the top 12 teams in England. Elsewhere Asisa Singh (VI) and Sara d’Attanasio (LV) won the Bristol U18 title. Lucy Banks (L5) was best speaker out of 144 at the U18 Debate Mate competition in London. Congratulations to Emma Warburton, Melissa Yeung, Isabel Murray (VII) and Bee Boileau (VI) who all reached the grand final. We then had a good deal of fun with ‘Pro-Am’ teams of seniors and juniors at UCL where Melissa and Lucy came third. These are ground-breaking performances from our U14s.
