News from the Sports Master
This has been another busy week of sport at Claires Court Junior Boys. Last weekend our U9 A and B teams competed at the St Bernards festival. It was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils, our U9A team finished third while our U9B team were unbeaten and won the B team tournament. 
This week our year groups have had their normal fixtures. U9ABC travelled to Thorpe House on Wednesday with two strong wins for the U9A and B teams. The U11 teams hosted Thorpe House and Chandlings on Wednesday. It was a great afternoon with some superb team performances and results. 
On Friday this week we had five pupils compete at the ISA Regional Cross Country. Dan Chen, Harry Wojciechowicz, George Norris, Zac Wood and Leo Starkey all run fantastically well. Dan, George, Zac and Leo all finished inside the top ten in their respective races and have therefore qualified to represent the region at the National Championship in March. 
We wish our U10A and B teams all the best as they travel to St John’s Beaumont  this afternoon for a football tournament.

News from the Chess Master
Delancey Chess update
Congratulations to Moksha and Kanishka who have both qualified for the Delancey Megafinal. Playing in GM Nick Pert's tournament at Eton College on Sunday 2 February, both brothers earned the required score to progress to the next round.
U14 Chess
Maidenhead hosted Richmond on Saturday to an U14 match. Josh S, Moksha and Kanishka were all selected to represent Maidenhead. Josh and Moksha earned 1/2, whist Kanishka won both of his games. Well done boys!
Chess club training
On Monday, I had the chance to take a small group of younger players for a training session. We looked at the movement of the pieces and how chess is a game of problem solving. The boys did very well earning several House Points. I encouraged them to work on lichess to improve. This, of course, applies to all players!
