UK Junior Chess Championships

Four pupils from Years 6-9 competed in the UK Junior Chess Championships on Monday, hosted at Bristol Grammar School.

The Clifton High School team competed against schools from across the south west region and staff were extremely impressed by the standard of all teams and the level of chess being played by pupils as young as eleven years old!

Antoine, Gaetan, Anango and George achieved 5th place in the competition overall, with Team Captain, Gaetan, winning all but one of his matches. The team are looking forward to competing in tournaments in the near future. Well done to everyone who took part!
