Check Mate! – The Falcons Pre-Preparatory School for Boys Compete in Gigafinal

Last Updated on : 17th October 2017

Two budding ‘Chess Grandmasters’ from The Falcons Pre-Preparatory School for Boys have competed in the national Gigafinal Chess competition.

Budding 'Chess Grandmasters' Leo Hopkins (6) and Sammy Barrett (6)

 The pupils took part in the Delancey UK Schools Chess Competition and recently beat 40 other competitors in the quarter-finals. Scoring 4 points out of 6, the boys secured a place in the highly coveted semi-final and won an admirable bronze medal for the first time playing in the competition.

 Sammy Barrett, (6) and Leo Hopkins, (6) represented The Falcons Pre-Preparatory School for Boys at the competition where they determinedly competed for a place in the final. With Sammy scoring a commendable 4 out of 6 points and Leo scoring 3 out of 6, the boys put on a challenging performance.

Headmaster Andrew Forbes commented: “We are incredibly proud of Sammy and Leo and their fantastic achievements. They have represented the school tremendously.

 “We are delighted that the pupils have shown a real interest in chess, with 50 of them attending the club in their own time. The game teaches the boys reasoning skills, patience and strategic thinking – great for helping to prepare for the 11+ examinations.”

 The Falcons Pre-Preparatory School for Boys accommodates boys aged 3-7 and is based at 2 Burnaby Gardens, Chiswick.

 The school has a strong focus on individual learning and accommodates all of its pupils’ abilities. It has strong ties with the top London schools and helps to prepare the boys for the 7+, 8+ 11+ and common entry. The school offers choice and flexibility and prides itself on its relationship with parents and guardians.
