This has been a successful week for the school chess teams as both A and B teams have got through to the third and final round of the West Sussex U11 school’s competition which began last term.
The A team spent Thursday afternoon at Great Walstead where Copthorne faced three other schools. Although Copthorne were a strong team they took their time and secured themselves a place in the final by the end of the second round.
Despite the long trek to Eastbourne, Copthorne’s B team enjoyed their match against three other schools where they also secured a place in the final.
Tuesday proved to be another successful day for Copthorne at the Cottesmore U 13 chess congress as the boys came away with third position. Not bad for U10’s !
Copthorne A team: Josh H, Jamie W, James R and Sarena B.
Copthorne B team; Freya, Daniel, Ben K and Emma.
Copthorne U 13: Josh, Jamie and James
Well done all of you and thank you for the commitment you have showed to the school. You have all behaved impeccably and have have demonstrated to others what Copthorne is all about. Thank you also to Miss Prinsloo and Mrs Jones who have chauffeured the teams and to Mr Tuck for all your coaching and encouragement.
