Champions of the Schools’ Challenge General Knowledge Quiz
9 February 2022
On Tuesday afternoon, Gresham’s pupils travelled to King Edward VII Academy in King’s Lynn for the regional final of the Schools’ Challenge General Knowledge Quiz.
Joe, Georgie, Maddi and Cerys won the fixture 350 to 150 points and emerged as Regional Champions for the first time.
This was the third successive year that Gresham’s had reached the final and KES had beaten us when the trophy was last contested in 2020. The key to the team’s success was their speed and accuracy in the starter questions, where they showed impressive knowledge of the queen of the Roman gods, the SDP, Hurricane Katrina, Ecuador, Salami, Sherlock Holmes, Jurgen Klopp, Anodes, Gianni Versace and Roman numerals.
Well done to them all and good luck for the next stage in the national competition.
