THREE students had a clean sweep in a language competition run by the University of Sheffield.

Through the generosity of the Herbert Hughes Memorial Fund, four prizes for proficiency in Spanish are offered every year by the Department of Hispanic Studies at the university.  

Thomas Rotherham College student Emma-Kate Jones won the £120 first prize, classmate Tiannah Pedler the £100 second prize and Holly Windle £80 for coming third.

The students competed against over 30 students from schools and colleges across South Yorkshire in completing a written essay and reading exercises in the language.
