We had a fantastic day at the EMACT Reading Competition at Leicester University! Over 140 competitors attended from nine schools. The standard was very high and the competitions were hard-fought, as people had obviously put in a lot of work preparing for the day. We congratulate the winners, and thank everyone who attended, whether as competitors, staff or judges. A full list of prize-winners is available here.
This event is supported by the Classical Association.
