Chess

At Birchwood Grove has a strong track record with chess development. We believe chess is a great game that can teach children to to think strategically, solve problems, improve concentration and help them analyse situations. 

Birchwood Grove is proud to be part of the Sussex Junior Chess Organisation which is flourishing with an average of 40 schools as members. We currently have two teams competing in the Under 11's Primary Chess Cup.

Birchwood Grove offers a chess club on Fridays after school for all abilities to start learning this tactical game until 4:15pm at just £3.00 per session. If your child is interested in joining chess please contact the school office for more details.
