Chess Champion

Rithvik (P3) has won the British Under 8 Chess Blitz championship 2021 and has qualified to play in the grand finale of the British Chess championship (junior under 8) representing Scotland.

The tournament is taking place on October 2 and October 3 in Milton Keynes.

Rithvik also represents Scotland (Junior Under 8 Category) in the Delancey UK School challenge final.

 We wish Rithvik the best of luck and we can’t wait to hear how he gets on.

There are various chess clubs at Heriot’s, split in to year groups (P4, P5, P6, P7) and a Senior group too. This is just one of many extra-curricular opportunities for Junior pupils to get involved in.
