‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Chess teams 'check-in' at Collingham

The Barnby Road chess teams competed in the spring term round of the Newark District School's chess league which took place at John Blow School, Collingham last night.

As in the previous round we were able to enter four very strong teams. Teams from 8 different schools took part, involving 22 teams in total. This event is an opportunity to meet people from schools we do not usually come across such as Kneesall, Flintham and Sutton on Trent and for different children to represent Barnby Road.

All the teams performed well; special mention should go to the 'D' team (made up entirely of year 5 grandmasters of the future: Louis Ketley, Thomas Linford, Josh Ridyard & Lucy Finch) who are currently our top-performing team. They sit 4th in the overall table, 1/2 point behind 3rd place.

Special mentions also to individuals who won a medal for winning all 3 of their matches on the evening: Arjun Prakash, Jack Hatfield, Thomas Linford and Josh Ridyard. Well done boys.

The final round will take place in the summer term.
