English Chess Federation Junior Team Challenge

On Friday January 25th Hugh Christie School took part in the Under 13 English Chess Federation Qualifier Tournament held at The Judd School. Five other schools took part. These were; Sevenoaks School, Bennett Memorial, Eltham College, Skinners and Judd.

The Junior Challenge was aimed at students in Year 7 and 8 and the team members representing Hugh Christie were Jacob Noonan, Robert Payne, Saem Rahman, Dylan Roberts and Christian Brown.

Despite tying with Bennett and narrowly losing to Judd, the eventual winners, Hugh Christie narrowly missed out on qualification for the regional finals at Hertford College, Oxford.

Mr Horne would like to congratulate all five team members who performed outstandingly well. They all displayed great talent and sportsmanship throughout the whole event and were a credit to the school.
