Year 8 pupils at Cordeaux have been working in groups to produce presentations marketing the attractions, amenities, facilities and qualities of Lincolnshire. 

The aims of the presentation were to persuade national Olympic teams to bring their squad to stay and train in Lincolnshire. 

The work has been cross-curricular with pupils applying knowledge and skills across History, Geography, Maths, English and other subject areas. Doreen Stephenson, Leader of East Lindsey District Council, was guest of honour at the school, praising the students for the high quality of the work.
