Copthorne are Sussex U11 Chess Champions

06 Jun 2013

3 Copthorne pupils (Amardip, Madeleine and Adam Smith) were part of the Sussex U11 team that won the National Championships yesterday at Nottingham High School. There were 18 counties at the final with a team of 24 children each and to be crowned National Champions is a huge achievement. The Copthorne pupils should be especially proud of themselves since most teams consisted of Year 6 pupils and therefore the children were sometimes competing against those who were a year or even two years (in the case of Amardip) older.
