Chess Champion

ChessThe Chess Competition was finally completed this week.  Slightly later than planned due to absences, trips and sunny weather, it concluded with a very narrow finish indeed.  Congratulations to Benny who has retained his crown for the second year running to consolidate his position as Grindleford School Grand Master.

Benny 20
Harry 19

Archie 17
Carlos 16
Anna 15
Eleanor 15
