21 November 2019
Tameside’s top school pupils compete in Clarendon Sixth Form College’s ‘high school challenge’.
Pupils from nine schools across Tameside competed in the college’s university challenge style competition, to win a prize of £350 to invest into learning resources.
West Hill School, Glossopdale School, Fairfield High School, Hyde Community College, The East Manchester College, Copley Academy, Co-op Academy Failsworth, St Philip Howard Academy and Mossley Hollins High School all took part in the event.
Pupils competed in three rounds in 17 teams, with Mossley Hollins High School ending the day on a high. Two teams from the school beat tough competition to face each other in the grand final, taking home the top prize.
Angela Pearson, curriculum leader for A-levels at Clarendon Sixth Form College, said: “The college’s ‘high school challenge’ gets bigger and better every year. The talent and knowledge of the teams blows me away and this year did not disappoint. Mossley Hollins High School have done extremely well, not only to win but to have two teams in the final. Congratulations to them and I hope that the prize money can be put to good use.”
