Exceptional UKLO Results

28 Mar 24

Woodbridge students have been celebrating exceptional success in the UK Linguistics Olympiad. In the third year in which Woodbridge has taken part in the UK Linguistics Olympiad, we have smashed our previous records, achieving a large number of awards across all four levels.

Especially impressive were the eight Golds awarded to students who came in the top 5% nationally in their category. Year 10’s Alexander C did exceptionally well, gaining a Gold in the Advanced competition (designed for Sixth Formers) while still only being in Year 10.
Moreover, Woodbridge took 20% of the Golds awarded nationally in the Breakthrough category, a tremendous achievement by our seven winners.

Very few schools capture one fifth of the Golds in one competition and it is testimony to the strength of language teaching at Woodbridge School that this has been achieved.

Other highlights included four Silvers in the Intermediate competition and a very impressive nine Silvers in the Foundation (Level 2) competition.

Sixteen students gained Bronze in the Intermediate section including four Year 9s who were competing a year up.
Six students gained a Bronze in the Foundation competition and twelve Bronze awards were achieved to go with our seven Golds in the Breakthrough (Level 1) competition.

Overall, Woodbridge’s haul of awards was 61:
8 Gold
13 Silver
40 Bronze.

Very many congratulations to all involved on a most impressive set of results.

Breaking news!
We have just heard that Year 10’s Alexander has been awarded a Merit in Round 2 of the Advanced UKLO!

This puts him in the top 40 nationally of a competition designed for Sixth Formers. Miss Wright, Head of Academic Scholars and Oxbridge, said,

“I am exceptionally proud of Alexander – he is a superb linguist, studying Latin, Classical Greek, French and Japanese, while also studying composition at the Royal College of Music. To have achieved this level of success competing against pupils who are two or three years older than him is outstanding.”
