Pupils reach semi-finals of national spelling bee competition
They came out on top against teams from seven other schools in the Bristol and Bath area.
The Ridings team comprised Marko Dogramadzi, Kapil Agarwal and George Pullen, all 13, and reserve Beth Martin, 12.
Their teacher Casey Beth Halliday said: "We were pleased to see that the students' hard work from January paid off and that they were able to perform at their best."
Acting head Rob Evans said: "I am delighted at the achievement of our Times Spelling Bee Team in winning the local heat of the competition in Bath. The students are a great credit to the school, especially the work of the student coaches who helped prepare the team. I am looking forward to Mrs Halliday leading the team to further success in the regional event later in the month."
