The Boston Grammar School Junior Quiz A Team have been beaten by Haberdashers’ Aske’s School, from Elstree in Hertfordshire, in the semi-finals of the National Junior Challenge Quiz held at the Perse School, Cambridge. I understand that the BGS team put up a good fight but Haberdashers’ Aske’s, who have won the competition for the last three years, came out on top with 900 points against BGS’s 620 points. This is the furthest a BGS team has got in the competition in over a decade.
The representatives of BGS were very impressed by the facilities at the Perse School. The final of the competition will take place at Dulwich College.
Thanks go to Richard Cammack and Richard Anderson for their reports on the competition which went into this and other blog articles.
