Quiz Club is a unique and exciting approach to motivating, inspiring, encouraging and rewarding children in their quest for knowledge and providing them with the opportunity to celebrate their achievements as part of a high profile, national competition. More than 400,000 children take part in the Championships annually, making it the largest inter-school competition in the UK.
The General Knowledge Quiz Championships reinforce team work, boost confidence and encourage strategic thinking.
Altrincham Preparatory School entered two teams to the Regional Heat which was held at Lady Barn House School. Each team comprised of 4 boys - one each from Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. The boys worked together to show off their superb general knowledge skills whilst competing against other preparatory schools. It was a nail-biting competition with team points constantly changing as the boys answered questions on The Spanish Armada, The Mojave Desert, the Antarctic explorer Vivian Fuchs, temperatures on the planet Mercury, to name a few!
Team Two (Ted, Arran, Oliver and Yousaf) came runners up in this competition which means they potentially have a chance of going to the Championship Finals.
A huge well done to both teams!
