Wilson's School

UK Chess Challenge 2017

This term over a hundred Wilson's pupils took part in UK Chess Challenge. There were three separate tournaments on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes and Thursday after school. Pupils taking part won badges, which some proudly displayed on their blazers, mascots and score books. Winners of the tournaments were Alex Nielsen (U6), Chia Da Yap (L6) and Kiran Lee (9S). Unlike previous years, in 2017 all players in years 7 to 13 can enter the regional final (called the Megafinal) in Leatherhead on Saturday 29 April.

Any pupil at Wilson's wishing to enter should see Dr Cooper at Chess Club in F12 on Tuesday or Thursday lunchtime to find out the details.
