A school visit from Maria Eagle MP, the Hon. Member for Chess!

15/05/2018

The Member of Parliament for Garston and Halewood, Maria Eagle visited CSC chess lessons in progress at Bishop Martin School in Liverpool on Friday. Maria is a former England Junior Chess Champion along with her sister Angela, both of whom played on the same team as CSC Executive Malcolm Pein. She came along to the school to test her mettle against Liverpool's up and coming young chess talent.

Maria took on the best chess players at the school and soon started to play some seriously good attacking chess.

Our thanks to the school’s Headmistress Sue Aspenal and our regional coordinator Bob Clark for arranging this fantastic experience. The pupils enjoyed chess instruction by Nick Hawkins and at the end. The schoolchildren were lucky enough to have their very own Question Time  session with Maria Eagle where they pulled no punches!

Looks like one pupil managed to give both Maria and Malcolm a good pause for thought.


latest News: Visit from International Chess Master

March 15, 2018

Our school today welcomed a visit from, Malcolm Pein, International Chess Master & CEO of Chess in Schools. Malcolm has supported our children by providing equipment and helping a group attend the London Chess Festival before Christmas. He visited our Key Stage 2 classes with our weekly Chess Tutor, Bob Clark. Malcolm gave an inspirational master class and provided lots of valuable top tips to the children to help them improve their game.

We would like to thank Malcolm for taking time out to visit our school and for his continued support. We are now looking forward to our next tournament at St George's Hall and to taking part in the London Festival later in the year.
