The best players at Wilson's play chess for England, and so our first team is one of the best in Surrey. Four other Wilson's teams play in other divisions with great success. Our teams also perform well in the national schools competition, with the first team having often played at the national finals.
Pupils aspiring to be in the chess team or wanting to improve their game should get as much practice as possible; they should do this by going to chess tournaments, by going to the chess club at lunchtimes (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday), or by joining a local chess club. There are also after school chess squad sessions on Thursdays for the more serious chess players who are members of the English Chess Federation.
