Year 6 Chess Champions!

Chess Competition Students

We have some super cool news to share with you. On Sunday, May 28th, seven of our incredible Year 6 children took part in The UK Chess Challenge Megafinal at Cheadle Hulme School in Manchester. Let’s give a big round of applause to Ruby, Florence, Edie, Aarukshan, Riley, and Harry. These chess prodigies showed off their skills and sportsmanship throughout the day!

Our champions played a total of six challenging matches. Can you believe it? They faced tough opponents, but they gave it their all and showed incredible determination. As a team, they achieved some absolutely fantastic results. We are so proud of each and every one of them!

But that’s not all! We have three extraordinary players who have qualified for the next round called the Northern Gigafinal. Let’s give a huge cheer for Emilia, Aarukshan, and Ruby!

We also want to give a special shout-out to Mrs. Khan, Riley’s awesome mom. She generously gave up her Sunday to accompany us to the competition. Her support and dedication made it possible for us to participate and have this incredible experience. Thank you, Mrs. Khan!
