Five Year Success for Newbury Chess Champs

Newbury house chess winners 2019

Congratulations to Newbury House who have been crowned House Chess champions for an incredible fifth year running!  Twenty-four Prep School pupils have battled it out on the chess board in this year's House Chess Tournament, with many fiercely competed games aligned with some great thought, strategy and surprising results.

A special mention goes to Guy Van E (Monk Jones), Alex S (Newbury), Josh H (Westfield) and Henry R (Newbury) who all won their respective groups in what was, once again, a very tight competition.  Well done also to all the players, including those in reserve and called upon at short notice, for making this such a great tournament.
