The school chess club entered the UK Chess Challenge and started a fun tournament for all members over the Spring Term with lots of practise games hoping to qualify for the Hampshire Mega Final on Sunday, April 23rd in Basingstoke.
The standard of chess amongst the members is improving surely and steadily with the results in the balance all the way to the final round!
The School Champion is Darin with Francisco a close runner-up, Lucas: third and Matthew: fourth. Clara showed that the girls can play just as well as the boys with a strong performance. Also taking part were Joao and Rufus who are showing promising signs of improvement.
We have been invited to play in chess matches during the Summer Term by other local schools and hope to host at least one match at St. Peters.
All the other members of the chess club and team are seeing strong improvement in their chess and are looking forward to learning more about chess in the Summer Term.
The school chess club meets each Wednesday after school and forms for the Summer Term may be obtained from school reception.
