Preparing children for life's horizons



Chess Club

Chess is more than just a pastime - though, as pastimes go, it's one of the classiest.

Chess gives the mind a great workout. It strengthens concentration. It fortifies thinking skills. It teaches strategy and tactics.

Chess Club meets every Wednesday afternoon. It is serious fun. We compete in county competitions and internal competitions. One of our pupils achieved first place in an Under-11 competition at Budmouth School, becoming the youngest boy in the school to win his School Colours.




  • Every child from Years 5 – 8 has been scheduled to play a chess match. We look forward to inspiring everyone about the game; good luck to all participants!
