Event Details

Chess Club will run for 10 weeks, from Friday 20th September 2019 until Friday 6th December 2019.

The World's most enduring and popular board game, more than 2000 years old. Beginners to advanced players are all very welcome. You can learn the moves and basic strategies, play for fun, or improve your skills and aim for a place in the high successful school team. Chess for all standards. Chess is gymnastics for the mind and fun to play and learn. Studies have indicated children who play chess tend to reap benefits in a number of other areas including problem solving and maths. This term at Friday afternoon Chess, your child will have a chance to: - learn some basic strategy and tactics - play against other children of a similar level - learn at least a couple of other fun intellectual games played on a 64 square board (Chess Variants) - attain or reinforce some mathematical, linguistic and problem solving skills without realising that is what they are doing (Chess uses some vocabulary from German, French and Italian) - get a basic overview of the history of chess - pick up a universal skill which they can use and develop at any future point in their lives - serious players who wish to play competitively will receive some advanced tuition and have access to a library of puzzles and problems with the opportunity to play with some of the best juniors in the country.

Refunds due to missed sessions
Suppliers and providers are booked and paid in advance of clubs commencing. Therefore we cannot offer refunds for sessions that clash with school trips, fixtures, summer residentials or other school events. We are also unable to offer refunds for sessions missed due to pupil illness or other absence.

Payment Methods
You can pay by Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Child Care Vouchers.

Child Care Vouchers (CCV)
You can pay for any after school clubs with a CCV. To use a CCV select 'Pay by Invoice' during the checkout process. This will bypass the card payment. You will then need to instruct your CCV provider to pay the school with the name of the club you have booked as a reference.

Important Note: 'Pay by invoice' option is only available for parents who wish to pay by child care voucher. All other payments must be made using a credit or debit card. Any bookings made using 'pay by invoice' that are not settled with a child care voucher will be cancelled and the place will be allocated to the next child on the list.

All places applied for are for 1 child per application. If you have siblings that wish to attend the same club you must apply twice. The school reserves the right to reallocate any places where payment has not been received by Friday 20th September 2019.

Please be aware that it is no longer possible to change clubs or days after the first week that clubs end. For this term no changes will be considered after Monday 23rd September 2019. Should your child drop out of a club at any time during the term, refunds will not be offered.
