Quiz Club Semi-Final
A team of 4 children from Forms I, II, III and IV represented Ashfold in the semi-final of the National General Knowledge Inter-School Quiz Championship.
This is the country’s largest inter-school competition, with over 400,000 7– 11 year olds taking part each year. Our team was pitted against some very clever children, mostly from London prep schools, and the questions were considerably more challenging than in our area heat in January.
Undaunted, our children put up a good fight and showed off their impressive collective knowledge and team tactics. At one point we were in 2nd place but unfortunately we were pipped at the post on the last couple of questions and finished in fourth place.
The children clearly enjoyed themselves and should be very proud of their achievement. Well done to Emilia (Form I), Harry G (Form II), Xander (Form III) and Angus (Form IV). Look out for them on University Challenge in a few years’ time!
