Schools Challenge intermediate quiz team
29 November 2023
Gresham’s has been participating in the new national online Schools’ Challenge Quiz. Previously we have been pitted against only teams in East Anglia, but this new format saw us immediately in action against other schools nationwide.
In the Intermediate competition (Years 9 and 10) our team of James C, Darcy G, Sophie J and Hennie D won their match against Lady Eleanor Holles School Hampton 230 points to 130 points and they progress to Round Two. James was particularly instrumental to the victory with his speed on the buzzer.
Our Senior team (Years 11-13) – Guy P, Cerys D, Pablo B-G, Heidi W and reserve Evie F – came up against a strong team from Kingham Hill in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire. Despite leading through the early stages of the match, Kingham Hill pulled ahead in the final third to win 250-150. Guy was particularly strong on the buzzer throughout.
