Many congratulations to four Berky chess players who have qualified for the Gigafinal of the Delancey UK Schools’ Chess Challenge. Two of our Year 5 players won through in the U10 tournament, while two Year 3 pupils qualified in the U8 section - one of the U8s was the winner of the Gloucestershire ‘Supremo’ title. Mr Cole, Head of Chess commented, "Berky can be very proud of these four young chess players. To win through two tough qualifying rounds takes plenty of skill and determination. It is especially encouraging to see our Y3 players performing so well. Several of that year group have made massive improvements this year and our two qualifiers certainly deserved their success in this competition." The Gigafinal takes place in Manchester in July.
