Thirsk School pupil Lewis Pull showed he knew his French with a high score in a national linguistic competition.

Twelve Year Seven pupils from Thirsk School & Sixth Form College took part in the French Linguatrivia competition, a national event organised by Linguascope.

The pupils had to answer 50 multiple choice questions relating to the French language and culture of France, in 30minutes.

Lewis Pull was one of the pupils taking part along with Louise Barton Arthur Bell, Will Chapman, Scarlett Chatten), Ben Dalton, Oliver Harrison, Ben Hughes, Harley McElhone, Lewis Mason and Alexandra Ventress.
