On Thursday 27th June, the school quiz team travelled to the National Gallery in London for the finals of the National GK Quiz. The team were fantastic and were a real credit to themselves, their parents and the school. Twelve teams took part from all across the country. In a nail biting final 6 questions, the team held their nerve and held onto their second position, finishing only 180 points behind the winning team. Only two of the twelve teams achieved a score of over 2000 points (amounting to correctly answering approximately 80% of the questions).

 

Congratulations to each and every one of you – you were an absolute pleasure to work with. A special mention must go to Thomas Carter, as this was the 4th final in a row that he has participated in. You will be missed!

 

Many thanks to you and your parents for their support in enabling you to take part in this event.
