Preparatory School pupils have earned a place at the National Inter-School Quiz
Championships finals this year, which will take place at Harrow School. To
qualify, the team consisting of George Harvey (aged 13 from Braintree), Josh
Bird (aged 11 from Stebbing), Alfie Summers (aged 12 from Terling) and James
Cotterill (aged 13 from Scotland) had to win through a regional qualifying heat
at Holmwood House back in December.
The boys won the
heat with flying colours, having taken the lead immediately and never releasing
it from their grasp. Brian Hays, Director of Co-Curricular Sports and
Activities at Felsted, commented; “Taking a lead after the first
question and maintaining it throughout the next 39 questions is very
impressive, and the boys were fantastic.”
The Team will take
a group of supporters with them for the final, including their peers, teachers,
and Headmistress Jenny Burrett, who was also delighted with the boys’ efforts.
The finals will take place later in 2014.
