North Staffs High School Championships.

I have just received the following from Jonathan Blackburn, the County Junior Secretary :

On Wednesday February 15th, Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy will host the North Staffordshire High Schools championships. Currently 11 schools from all around will send teams of 4 (some more than 1 team!) to see who will be crowned Champions. While it is a competitive event, the focus is on continuing to build upon the recent resurgence of chess at this age range, and provide extra-curricular opportunities for the pupils within these chess clubs.

A big thank you goes out to all those teachers giving their time to run these clubs and bring their pupils to the event! As well as to Chess in Schools & Communities who have provided many of the schools with the equipment to run the clubs.
