St Ben’s Chess Club

The Chess Club meets every Wednesday afternoon, 3.15 – 4.15pm, with Mr Parsons (formerly the teacher responsible for Chess at Millfield Prep School) in charge, with Mr Reakes (parent of two members of the club) and Miss Lock in attendance.


Somerset Junior Chess will be holding a number of all-day Grand Prix events for keen players of all ages on the following dates:-

  • Sunday, 12th November at Somerset County Cricket Club, Taunton
  • Sunday, 10th December at High Ham C of E Primary School, High Ham
  • Sunday, 7th January at Millfield Prep School, Glastonbury POSTPONED – PLEASE WATCH THIS SPACE FOR NEW DATE
  • Sunday, 4th February at St John’s First School, Frome

These tournaments, which are arranged in different year groups, are open to all and are of course hugely beneficial to the youngsters in making progress with their chess, especially those boys and girls who have been attending the school club for at least a year.

If Mums, Dads or Carers would like more information they are welcome to see Mr Parsons at the end of Wednesday chess club. He is also happy to help to set up car-sharing, although he himself will not be present at any of the events.
