Pupils from the Gateway Primary Free School from Year 3 to 6 are currently testing their wits against each other by enjoying a special league chess club once a week after school. 

The pupils attend the ‘Ministry of Chess’ club every Thursday and are judged by their teacher, Mr Lowry, to be either Bronze, Silver or Gold, depending on their experience and level. The club was only started in September 2015 and already has 30 members!

Club teacher, Mr Stuart Lowry, said “The club has only been going since the beginning of the academic year but we are seeing some real talent coming through the ranks. We would welcome any other schools in the area to link up and play against each other. I can be contacted at the Gateway Primary Free School on 01375 489094 if there are interested players out there who want a challenge!"

See Mr Lowry if you would like to take part!
