Tremendously tight scores at the top-end this afternoon. A half point separated each of the top five teams in descending order. Todays heats set a record number of teams participating - 45 in total. The winning tam was Oxford High 2 - a great result was achieved by Connie, Elizabeth, Alice and Becky. In close Second place was Larkmead and a 1/2 point behind them was the Cherwell School. It was a very hectic time for the markers and scorers. We also had two teams of authors participating - they were: Dennis Hamley, Sally Nicholls, Robert Rigby, Julia Golding Mark Robson, Marie-Louise Jensen, MG Harris, Jo Cotterill and Natasha Narayan. Many thanks to OUP for giving us 44 copies of Tim Bowler's latest book as prizes. With such a large number of schools participating the organisation at St Gregory the Great was spot on. Thank you all for attending and making this a historic heat. The organisation of the team of Barbara, Gaynor, Jacky and Jodie was very efficient.
