A team from Terrington Hall School is through to the North-East regional semi-finals of a national quiz competition having won the area heat of the Quiz Club National Keystage 2 General Knowledge Inter-school Championship.
Pitting their wits against teams from Lyndhurst, Coram House and Bootham Junior School, the Terrington Hall team achieved 83% across forty questions, ahead of Lyndhurst who came in with 78%.
Terrington Hall’s Head of Latin Nick Witteveen said:
The children thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of this event which not only tested their general knowledge but also required sophisticated team tactics. I am immensely proud of their performance and look forward to the next round.
The Terrington team will now travel to Birkdale Prep School, Sheffield on 30 April for the North-East semi-finals, the winner of which will be invited to participate in the national finals later in the Summer term.
