St Paul’s Juniors / Juniors News

On Monday 16 April, our chess team competed in the national finals of the Junior Team Challenge of the National School Chess Championships held in Hertford College, Oxford. 

The boys competed against nine other regional winners and did well in this prestigious tournament. We finished second place with only half a point separating us from the winners. The team consists of four Lower Third Year boys and one Upper First Year boy in reserve. All boys represented the school well, with two members who stayed unbeaten, and one winning all his games. Well done to all the boys!
