In 2011, Public School 124 took its students to compete in the second highest category at a national high school chess competition - and won.

 

The pupils at the school, where kids are aged six to 11, are predominantly Asian American and come from the surrounding middle- to lower-income neighbourhood.

London Classic 8th - 15th December 2010

Schools were welcome to visit the London Chess Classic for free chess coaching  and we had professional chess coaches on hand to give individual or group lessons or to answer questions about setting up a chess club.  A very enjoyable simultaneous display took place on 9th Dec involving some leading  British players.

 

 

 

 

 

And the 1st London Chess Classic Junior Tournament also took place on the 9th Dec consisting of 6 rounds where children in each age group were paired against each other. They played individual games but schools scored as a team.
