Cedars' students try to crack 'The Dickens Code'

We'd like to celebrate The Cedars Academy's Y10 English students, who were treated to an amazing experience of trying to crack 'The Dickens Code' during a special workshop held at the PTC in November.

The session was held by Dr. Claire Wood from the University of Leicester - who has just very recently won a Times Higher Education Award for her work on the project!

Our Year 10 students had both a captivating and puzzling time trying to decode the secret shorthand of Charles Dickens, as part of their wider study of Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'

A brilliant time was had by all involved - we'd like to thank Dr Wood for both her time and passion throughout the session!
