The 12-15-year-old pupils - Abigail Holden, Adithi Ravishankar, Alisa Ivanov, Kashish Kapoor, Madeleine Thomas, Nawar Hussain and Rebecca Hald - from Sheffield Girls’ senior school have passed the tricky Google Certified Educator Level 1 qualification.

The examination, usually taken only by teachers, proves proficiency with the full Google suite of online tools including You Tube, Google Drive and Google Hangouts, and will now be used by the pupils in the classroom to deliver and enhance lessons at the school.
