STUDENTS at Chilton Trinity have been given new ‘Linguist of the Fortnight’ awards for outstanding work in French, German or Spanish.

Staff have been giving students the award for excellence in their effort in lessons, exceptional homework and showing a passion and flair for language learning.

Head of Languages Andrew Pearce said: “These awards have gone down extremely well and further increased motivation in the subjects.

“The first group of students have also been presented with their ‘Linguist of the Term’ awards, which is a flag pin badge for the country of the language being studied.”
