Member school Pennthorpe has won Pfizer's annual school competition on Superbugs for the second year running.

Member school Pennthorpe has won Pfizer's annual school competition, 'Superbugs: Join the fight' for the second year running, with Year 6 pupil Romilly emerging as the 2023 Key Stage 1-2 winner.

In 2019, Pfizer introduced the popular 'program challenging children to develop creative campaign ideas that inform and educate their communities about antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and effective measures to combat it.

A panel of esteemed judges, previously including members from institutions like Great Ormond Street Hospital and ANTRUK, evaluated all submissions. Their task was to select one winner and one runner-up for both primary and secondary school categories.

As part of its prize, Pennthorpe has been granted a film-making workshop to transform Romilly's winning entry into a professionally produced video. The schools previously celebrated victory in the Key Stage 1-2 prize in 2022.
