What a terrific final week in the school chess tournament.  Congratulations to everyone who played but especially to Seamus Goldsworthy in Y5 who beat Felix Brown in the final game of the competition to nip into first place and take the Ashton Gate Primary School Chess Championship.  A thrilliing end to a hard fought tournament.
