Corby Technical School has a new Spelling Bee champion.

9T student Rachel beat last year’s overall winner 8C student Jack and our Year 7 Spelling Bee winner Kyle from 7S to take the title.

All three students were challenged to spell 23 of the most commonly misspelled words in the English language in the final which was staged in front of the whole school.

Rachel said: “I feel very happy and relieved to have won.”

All three finalists received medals and Rachel also received a trophy and an iPad.

English Teacher Markus Wilson said: “All three students did very well to get to the final.

“I’ve been very impressed with our students’ spelling abilities this year – they are improving every year.

“I would like to congratulate Rachel on her worthy win.”

The winning house in the Spelling Bee was Stephenson House.
