Heat win­ners are gen­er­ally quite clever

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

SOME young clever-clogs aced the re­gional heat of a na­tional gen­eral knowl­edge com­pe­ti­tion.

A squad of Che­sham Prep School pupils went to Dave­nies School in Bea­cons­field for the re­gional heats of the Na­tional Gen­eral Knowl­edge Key Stage 2 Quiz Club on Jan­uary 28.

Com­pet­ing against 10 other teams, the school’s two teams of four pupils, one pupil from each year group three, four, five and six, did re­mark­ably well.

One team fin­ished sixth out of 12, while the other team won.

All pupils re­ceived cer­tifi­cates and each win­ning team mem­ber won a Quiz Club badge and tro­phy for the school as well.

This team will go for­ward to rep­re­sent Che­sham Prep School in the na­tional semi-fi­nals later this term.

The school’s two teams had been cho­sen based on gen­eral knowl­edge heats held at Che­sham Prep School at the start of term. The pupils cho­sen to com­pete in the com­pe­ti­tion were Year Three pupils Fionn Clare and Amelie Field, Year Four pupils, Sophie Barnard and Ge­orge Kil­li­grew, Year Five pupils Cal­lum Field and Char­lie Mills and year six pupils Fred­die Bate­son and Jack Hegin­bot­tom.
