Chess Players through to Semi-Final!

Posted: 9th February 2016


Saturday 6th February saw many of our talented chess players taking part in the zonal stage of the English Primary Schools’ Championship. The U9 section was won by the Prep ‘A’ team with 19 pts from 25. The ‘B’ team came in second place and the ‘E’ team – which was comprised of all year 3s – also qualified for the semi-final stage at Pontins in May.

The Prep had no fewer than five teams competing with the ‘C’ and ‘D’ teams not far behind in 9th and 10th place, out of 14 teams competing. An amazingly enthusiastic turnout and a superb performance by all boys.

The Under 11 section was also won by the DPL ‘A’ team with 20/25. They won all of their five matches. The ‘B’ team also qualified for the next stage. Unfortunately the intended three teams became two due to illnesses on the day.

Well done to all the boys who took part and played so well. We wish them all the best for the semi-finals in May.
