School and Nursery closure
Along with all schools in the country, we are closing from Friday 20 March until further notice to support and follow government guidelines to manage the Covid-19 outbreak.

We will support all of our community during this time, particularly with distance learning for our students to continue to give them the best education possible in the circumstances.

Please visit our news page for more information. We will also keep you informed by email.

We must all work together to do what we can to reduce the spread of coronavirus. Thank you for the kind messages of support during this crisis. Stay safe.

Social media
Whilst we may not be able to socialise as much as we would like at the moment, please follow us on our social media to stay in touch and to get our latest news. We’ll also share any resources, activities and tips that may be useful during this time.

News from the Chess Master
I am sorry to say that the tournament on Monday has been postponed. I will look to hold the tournament in the Summer Term. The Maidenhead Junior Chess Congress on 17 April has also been cancelled.
I have also received the following communication from Delancey Chess:

Dear chess teacher
It is with regret that we have taken the decision to postpone all Megafinals until September at the earliest. This is due to the continuing health crisis surrounding the coronavirus and the uncertainty that this brings for organisers and schools. Our current plan is to run the Gigafinals in October – but of course the situation is rapidly changing.

Many clubs are being cancelled at the moment. If you haven’t already we suggest you complete the schools stage of the competition as soon as possible – even if this means playing less than the full 7 rounds (reduce qualifying score accordingly).

Qualifiers should still visit the website and join the mailing list so that we can keep everyone in the loop regarding rescheduled dates.

I am waiting on advice from EPSCA over the Bristol tournament and will let you know as soon as I can.  
I would like boys to use their time to work on lichess.
