This term, as is tradition, we have been delighted to celebrate Languages Week here at Northampton High. As part of the celebrations, we held a number of exciting Classics events and activities for our students to enjoy.
Congratulations go out to the winners of our Latin scavenger hunt; Aaima, Aditi and Evelyn, and we hope you enjoyed your tasty prizes!
We were also fortunate to take part in a fascinating talk with a friend of Northampton High. Jess Cressy-Jones joined us via Zoom to talk about her experience of applying and moving to Leiden University in the Netherlands, where she is studying Politics and International Relations. It was amazing to hear from her directly and it gave us all an insight into what it was like moving and living abroad. She said to remember and value high school life, the routine and time we have with our friends. I think it opened my eyes and others to the opportunities available and how going to a university abroad may not be such a daunting possibility.
