Guardian Angels

Catholic Primary School

Chess Club

Chess at Guardian Angels started with 'Chess in School and Communities' with then visiting chess tutor Mr Lewis in 2013. Initially it was offered as part of the Year 5 curriculum. Proving very popular, chess was rolled out to Year 5 and 6 pupils and as an after school activity the same year, and then to Year 3 and 4 the next year.


Guardian Angels have competed in several different chess tournaments, Tower Hamlets, London and Online Worldwide, including the annual Chess Classic at Olympia. 


In 2015, a Year 6 pupil even had the opportunity to visit the House of Lords and play a game of chess against former Worlds Champion Gary Kasparov. 


Currently the Guardian Angels Chess Club meets on Tuesday lunchtimes and is open to 15 Year 3 and 4 pupils.
