On Wednesday 27th March, a small team of English students and staff travelled to Queen Mary’s School, Topcliffe for ‘Battle of the Books’, the Literature Competition for Years 9 and 10.
It was a very close competition, but our team of Dan Bryant, Alasdair Chisholm, Maria Devenny and Sam Shores came first out of eight schools. Ex St Aidan’s English Teacher Mr Pocock was the Quizmaster for the evening. The Head of English at Queen Mary’s remarked how these students were a credit to the staff and to St Aidan’s School.
As winners we will be hosting the event in 2020. Congratulations to all involved.
