National Final Beckons for Boys’ Quiz Club Team

Four pupils from Bolton School Junior Boys' School took part in and won this year’s Area Heat of the National General Knowledge Championship organised by Quiz Club. 

Hosted by a professional Quizmaster, the event created a tense atmosphere as several school teams pitted their wits against each other. Questions featured facts about momentous events in history, geography, art, music and literature, science, cultures from around the world, current affairs and world knowledge. Teacher Mrs Crowther said: “George, Adam, Ewan and Dhilan represented the school admirably gaining first place and securing their place in the National Finals, which will take place at the Dominion Theatre in London’s West End in June. They will join 100 teams from across the country, competing to become National Champions for 2019-2020.”

The competition motivates, inspires and rewards children in their quest for knowledge and provides them with an opportunity to celebrate their achievement by representing their school in the country’s largest inter-school competition (over 400,000 children take part each year).
