February 2017

Our Under 11 and Under 9 team went to Bristol to play in the National Primary Schools Chess Competition.  There were several different schools there.  We competed against 5 other teams in the Under 9s and 10 different teams in the under 11s.  All chess players did brilliantly, with everyone winning at least one game, if not more.  Our under 9 team came 2nd and qualified for the semi final at Bristol Grammar school in May.

Chess takes place every Friday in the small hall.

There are opportunities throughout the year to take part in inter-school tournaments as well as fun days where children get the opportunity to play against other children within Wiltshire.

If you are interested in learning to play chess, please see Mrs Cowell or Miss Jeffery
