The club is in its sixth year. It runs during Thursday lunchtimes through the Autumn and Spring terms. Key Stage 2 children can apply to join, but numbers are limited. Currently, there are 16 members (7 girls and 9 boys). Complete beginners are welcome. One year five boy is in his 3rd year of competing.
In the week before the spring half term holiday there is a 'chess' evening (6.30-8 p.m.) to which children, parents and an, as yet, undefeated headteacher are invited.
