BGS a Chess Leadership School - ECF recognition

Chess is thriving at BGS, with a daily lunchtime chess club, and inter-House and inter-school competitions. We are delighted that Bristol Grammar School has been approved as a Chess Leadership School by the English Chess Federation (ECF), in recognition of the School's commitment to chess.

BGS is the first school in the Bristol area, and among the first nationally, to be recognised by the ECF under this scheme. The status recognises the role BGS plays in the promotion of chess at BGS and beyond, especially our role as a tournament venue.
