Roman History Quiz for Trent Students!


On Sunday 29th September Sam Butler, Alexander Nathanail & Cameron Bovell, along with Miss Scothern & Mrs Winterton travelled to Bath Children’s Literature Festival for the final of the Roman History quiz against Altrincham Grammar School for Boys. The team had beaten other schools in the earlier stages of the quiz, when author Simon Scarrow visited Trent College as part of his book tour.

It was quite tense as they answered questions on Roman History and then a quick fire general history round. It all came down to the final question ‘Who was the last British winner of a Wimbledon singles title before Andy Murray?’ The other team got there first and answered incorrectly with Fred Perry. Passed over to Trent, Cameron answered with the right answer Virginia Wade.  Amongst the prizes they won £200 worth of Penguin books for the school library. Topping off a brilliant day, we also listened to authors Cathy Cassidy, Michelle Paver & Robert Muchamore talk about their new books.
