Are you a pawn or a knight?
Chess Club is a popular weekly gathering of Chess-heads from all across the school and all abilities. In our third year, we develop all chess skills and give opportunities to learn from other players. We take part in the Brent Chess Schools Tournament throughout the year and have awards for Best Player and Most Improved Player.

On Thursday 17th January the Byron Court Chess Team participated in the next rounds of the Brent Schools Chess League. We played against Princess Frederica, NWLJDS, Barham and Rimon. In the first game we drew one and lost three. In the second round we sadly lost three again but won one. In the final round we had two losses but two wins! Overall, it was a constructive experience and we hope to be successful in the next round.

It was my second time at the chess tournament and I enjoyed it more than the first. So straight after school I and my team mates went on the minibus to Barham Primary school. Then we settled down and practiced. I would do this again if I could!

At the chess tournament it was exciting and nervous at the same time. So first up was Barham Primary 'A' team which we lost to and after was NWLJDS 'C' team that we all won against! It was a wonderful experience
