Claires Court Make Top Eight
On Saturday 12 May, Junior Boys travelled to Bristol Grammar School to compete in the English Primary Schools’ Chess Association Semi-Final.
The Under 9 team, Kida, Josh, Moksha, Aaran, Tom and Kanishka, finished in second place out of 42 teams, earning their place in the National Final and making them one of the top eight chess schools in the country.
Richard Hogg, Junior Boys teacher, said:
“Many congratulations to the boys for making the final eight for the first time, we are very proud of you all. Many of our Junior Boys are already county players for their age group and are doing exceptionally well. We very much look forward to the final on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 July in Birmingham.”
