Congratulations to our National Schools Chess Team

3 Jul 24

Last week our National Schools Chess team competed in the finals of the competition at Nottingham University. Back in September, 341 teams entered the competition, whittled down to 26 going through to the finals, of which we were seeded 20th and East Anglian champions.

Our first round saw a narrow loss to RGS Guildford 3.5-2.5, but we bounced back with wins over University College School and Nottingham High School 5-1.

Round four saw a defeat to City of London School for Boys, before a final round draw with Latymer School.

We finished 11th overall, outscoring our seeding significantly; we received a chess clock as a prize.

Well done to Year 13’s Polina and James, Year 12’s Sergei and Harry, Year 11’s Nikolai, and Year 10’s Rowan; final scores in board order were Sergei 4.5/5, Nikolai 2.5/5, Rowan 2/5, Polina 2.5/5, Harry 2/5 and James 2/5.

Congratulations to these six and everyone else who has played for the School this year, both in the Nationals as well as online in the Ivan Gromov League which we won.
