Our Schools’ Challenge Quiz Team have excelled in the East Anglia region tournament  

On Tuesday evening, Gresham’s Quiz Team – Guy P, Cerys D, James C, Darcy G and supporting sub Hennie D travelled out to King Edward VII’s Academy in King’s Lynn to play two back-to-back fixtures against KES. Our matches there have previously always been close and hotly contested. We were behind in the first match but pulled ahead to prevail 350-260 in the final stages. The second match was a much more comprehensive win, 390-120. Our team showed excellent knowledge of Prime Ministers, currencies, monarchs, bestselling albums and much else besides but it was great to see all four quizzers scoring key starters and contributing to a clean sweep of answers in some rounds. Special mention to Guy who performed with distinction in both matches, especially on the buzzer for starter questions. We have only lost one match in this competition in three years – good luck to the team in the next round.
