North Devon Schools Summer Chess Tournament

It’s been a busy term and this week we hosted the return of the North Devon Schools Summer Chess Tournament and welcomed teams from Park, South Molton and Braunton school.


Mr Stanier was very impressed by all the GTS players and the sportsmanship throughout the event, especially when the pressure started to rise, and GTS A and Park A were equally tied after five rounds. Then there was a tense 2-minute blitz tie-break that ended 2-2. It was decided by the result on the top board, which Park narrowly won.


It was an amazing event and an exciting competition to have towards the end of term. We had a wide range of pupils taking part from Year 7 to Year 10.
