Chess Megafinal at BGS

We are delighted with the success of Bristol Megafinal of the UK Chess Challenge which we hosted in the Great Hall on Saturday 8 June.

This involved around 180 pupils from over 40 schools, including a BGS contingent of around 45 pupils from both Senior and Junior Schools.

For several players, this was their first chess tournament and 16 BGS players, ranging from Year 2 up to Year 10, qualified for the next round of this national competition, the Southern Giga-Final.

Congratulations to all of them on this achievement, particularly Nathaniel in Year 10 who was also overall runner-up in the top section with 5 wins out 6.

Chess continues to grow in popularity across all ages at BGS. If you're interested in playing, why not join one of our chess clubs, or speak to Mr Iwi about ways to get involved?
