"Hesketh House (Junior Girls' School) is a magical place of adventure, discovery, learning, friendship and joy. The girls, albeit within a modern, disciplined, hard-working atmosphere, appear each evening as though sprinkled in fairy dust."

Girls Progress to National Chess Final

Saturday, 04 June 2011

Congratulations go to Year 4 pupil, Sharon Daniel and Year 5 girls, Naadiya Mohammed and Zara Walsh who took part in the National Girls' Chess Championship qualifier in Leeds.

Against some strong opposition, Naadiya and Zara qualified for the under 10s' National Final; whilst Sharon qualified for the plate competition, narrowly missing out on a final place by only half a point. 

The final will be held at the prestigious St Paul's School, Hammersmith in London on 2 July.  Well done so far and we wish the girls good luck in the final!
