Delancey Chess Tournament

The Delancey UK Schools' Chess Challenge is the largest tournament of its kind, with over 1200 schools competing.  The Megafinal, which is the second round of this four-stage national competition, was held on Sunday at BGS in Bristol and Clifton High was represented by a team of pupils in various age categories.

All pupils performed superbly and many to great success. Omid, in Year 10, came third in the Under 15 Boys category; Sylvain, in Year 10, was placed second in the Under 14 Boys; Loic, in Year 6, was second in the Under 11 Boys; Gaëtan, in Year 8, took first place in Under 13 Boys; and Maëlys, in Year 1, came first in the Under 7 Girls competition.

Loic, Gaëtan and Maëlys, who are all siblings, qualified on positioning and points combined, and go through to the third round of the tournament; The Gigafinals.  Congratulations to all who took part and the very best of luck to these three Clifton High pupils in the next stage of the competition.
