School Chess Club Moves Online

It has been fantastic to hear how our students are adapting and making the most of lockdown. Our school chess club have just held their first online school chess club tournament. Six students took part: Rachel (Year 11), Georgia (Year 9), Eleanor and Delara (Year 8), and Sophie and Maryam (new Year 7). The girls played four games over an hour, on an online chess portal, with great success and enjoyment.  
 
Good luck also to the following students who have qualified for this weekend's Gigafinal, the penultimate stage of the (online) UK Chess Challenge: Georgia, Eleanor, Delara (U14) and Sophie (U12). We are really looking forward to hearing how you get on!
