Four Year 7 students came a very close second place at the East Midlands heat of the Kids Lit Quiz, held here at Lady Manners School in November.
The Kids Lit Quiz is an annual literature quiz for students aged 10-13 years.
Quizzes are held in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, United Kingdom and USA. The winning team from each heat competes in a National Final; national champions then go on to compete in the World Final.
Competition was stiff, with over 70 students in 18 teams competing from 11 schools across the region. Lady Manners School students performed very strongly throughout the competition, losing only to Sir Jonathan North Community College of Leicester when a tie-breaker question was necessary to determine the winner.
Well done to all involved!
