Chess

Chess is very popular at Wilson's, with many pupils going to chess club. Last year 60 pupils played a total of over 700 games of chess for the school.

The best players at Wilson's play chess for England, and so our first team is one of the best in Surrey. Other Wilson's teams play with great success. Our teams also perform well in the national schools competition, with the first team having often played at the national finals. For the past two years they have finished sixth.

Pupils aspiring to be in the chess team or wanting to improve their game should get as much practice as possible; they should do this by going to chess tournaments, by going to the chess club in F12 at lunchtimes (Tuesday and Thursday), or by joining a local chess club. There are also after school chess squad sessions on Fridays for the stronger chess players.
