Middle Game Strategy - Activate your rooks!

Lots of our kids love to keep their rooks in the corners and not activate them quick enough. A great video that will demonstrate this.

St Thomas Class Champion 2018 - Milly Sykes

This week we completed the 5th class competition at St Thomas. For the first time in those 5 years it is pleasing to see we have a girl who wins the competition.

Milly Sykes with 5 wins out of 6 (all with checkmate) beat Jenny Stanway in the final round. Jenny as a result finished in 3rd.

Micheala Mutopo came out of the pack to take 2nd place with Jay Ogden in 4th.

Austin Butterworth was very unlucky not being in on the final week.

Madison Hemstock after a slow start and a promising first CSC result on Sunday wins most improved player. 

Special mention to Josaia Verway who was in group 2 was tied for 4th so also played well above himself.

Chess in Schools Congress Results 20th May 2018

Another great competition. Considering it was a lovely day and Whit walks good to have 14 turn up for the chess out of a record 65 entries.

Ethan Lancaster moved up to the senior grp and after a slow start scored a fab 2.5 out of 5.

Well done to Maddison Smith to win the best girl prize.

Patrick Shaw achieved his best score to date with 4 out of 6.

William Hardman-Elliott after a pep talk halfway through rescued a v decent 4 out of 6.

The 3 girls making their debuts Madison Hemstock, Maisie Warburton and Jenny Stanway all played really well scoring 2.5.

Mustapha Dia scored the best of everyone with 4.5 but missed the prizes by 0.5 a pt.

Dylan Crothers and Isaac Blabo both played well and scored 3.5.

Adam Hamer (2.5) and Curtis Cresswell (2) may have hoped for better. Alex Hollingworth also like Ethan moved up to the v difficult senior group and had a difficult day but he will really benefit from the experience.
