The students from City of London Academy Shoreditch Park (CoLASP) won an inter-school chess competition at the Old Bailey.



At the eventMalcolm Pein, Chief Executive of CSC, said:

“Chess digitally detoxes children, teaches concentration, problem solving, how to plan, how to recognise patterns and a host of softer skills which provide some of the building blocks for employability in the new economy.

“As a universal game with no barriers of sex, language, culture or disability it socialises a classroom and boosts children’s self-esteem.”
