“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

Competitions

National Champion – Hannah Wookey (2014 Spelling Bee)

Beverley High School has a National Champion! Congratulations to Hannah Wookey on her recent success in the German Spelling Bee competition.

Hannah mastered 200 German words to compete in the national final of Routes into Languages Spelling Bee.

Finalists had just 60 seconds to correctly translate and spell the most number of words in German, French or Spanish, in a spellbinding final at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.

Hannah, said: "It was quite scary but you had to ignore the nerves.

"About 200 people were watching and you had to stand up in front of them and do it.

"I think I managed to translate and spell 23 words in a minute.

"I was really shocked when I won but felt proud of what I'd done.

" Hannah said competing in the final was less nerve-wracking than the first round of the contest at school.

She said: "I found it scariest doing it in front of my year group at school because they were people I knew.

" Hannah progressed through local and regional heats to reach the final of the competition, sponsored by the European Commission and Vocab Express.

She said: "The final was a really good experience as I met lots of different people and I also got the chance to look around Cambridge.

"It has also made me want to aim to go to Cambridge University in the future."
