Our school chess team are in the top 15 schools in the country
This weekend, our school chess team took part in the national semi finals in Bristol. They competed for over 6 hours on Saturday against the top schools in the country. Every player tried their hardest in games of the highest standard in a traditional hall containing over 450 players. We are so proud of Lavanya, Joseph, Jamie, Kian, and Aiden. Ulimately we did not manage to progress to the final but the school finished in the top 15 schools in the country and we are officially the top state school in the land! Fantastic!
I must extend my thanks to all of our parents who supported the children this weekend and Mr Williamson, Mrs Headland and Mr Crawley for giving direction to the team.
A wonderful achievement everyone.
