A Pinner school is to host a foreign language spelling competition for students from 11 girls’ schools.

Heathfield School for Girls, in Beaulieu Drive, will be hosting the regional semi finals of the Girls’ Day School Trust Foreign Language Spelling Bee on February 5.

Pupils from Heathfield and ten other girls’ private schools will go head to head to prove their language skills.

They will be tested on the spelling and pronunciation of 90 words in five different languages – French, German, Spanish, Latin and Mandarin.

This is one of four heats taking place across the country.

In total, 21 schools and 370 pupils are involved.

The winning teams will go through to the final at Howell’s School in Cardiff on March 5.

The event is being held to mark the 140th anniversary of the Girls’ Day School Trust, a group of 26 independent girls’ schools in England and Wales.
