The National Spelling Bee continues for Year 7s (French, German and Spanish)!

With continuing sponsorship from Vocab Express (including free access to Vocab Express for practice of the Spelling Bee words and a free subscription for 2021/2 for the school of the national final winner in each language) and a National Final at Cambridge University (dates tbc, circumstances allowing)
