BGS students win the Anthea Bell Prize for Young Translators 2022!

Regional Translation Champions at Bexley Grammar School

We’re delighted to announce that three of our students won the Anthea Bell Prize for Young Translators 2022 in the following categories:

Italian, Level 2: Lou Annarumma (9JEA)

Italian, Level 3: Sam Bowring (10ML)

Spanish, Level 4: Daniel Lambin (7MPM)

Moreover, Poppy White (9NSS) was awarded a commendation for her high quality work in German, Level 2.

This competition, run by The Queen’s College at the University of Oxford, is inspired by the life and work of the great translator Anthea Bell and involved 210 BGS students across all year groups. More than 260 schools across the UK took part in the competition, with over 3200 students submitting their creative translations from Spanish, French, German, Italian and Mandarin into English.

Well done to Sam, Lou, Daniel and Poppy! A truly outstanding achievement considering the high volume of entries received this year.
