This amazing achievement is testament to many hours of dedicated learning and practice.

Mr Andy Falconer, Head of St Peter’s 8-13, said: “A huge thank you to both the pupils for their hard work and dedication in the run up to the regional finals, and to their teachers for all their support. It is great to be able to offer the children the choice of all three of these languages in Years 7 and 8.”
