Our Chess team reach the Europa final…….
At the weekend our Chess team took part in the Europa League Final (part of the Champions’ League Chess school team competition). These finals are long and intense and the children are always incredibly impressive in their level of focus and strategic thinking. The team had to come through 2 qualification events to raise enough points to qualify for the 7 rounds on the final day. They came fourth place out of the 8 teams which was a wonderful result. Congratulations go to the whole team which included Bjorn M, Joe F (Captain), P Upadhyay and A Wright.
In addition, Jake G finished in the top half of the “Schools’ Individuals’ Challenge Final.” well done Jake!
