We have a proud history of competing in chess and have a thriving chess club run by Mr Kumar on a Friday morning. Chess Club is open to complete beginners, those who know how to move the pieces and also for children with knowledge of Chess. We will look at opening principles, common chess tactics like Pin, Fork and Skewer and the power to win the endgame.
