Chess at Billingham South Primary School


Chess Lessons and Chess Club

School Chess lessons take place on a Friday afternoon for Y3 children. These sessions are taught by Mr Richard Harris from the Chess in Schools Initiative. Throughout the year each Y3 child is taught Chess for a term. In addition to this, Chess Club is held on a Friday lunchtime for Y4, 5 and 6 children who have had the training. Throughout the year various competitions are held within school and against other Teesside Schools. Last year we continued our winning performances with several of our Y6 pupils playing in regional and national competitions where they did exceedingly well against equally talented competitors. We had a Stockton Champion and another boy who was a North of England winner!
