On the Buzzer

Our Year 6 team made up of George P, Esme M (Captain), Grace S and Lewis deC travelled to Uppingham on Tuesday 14th November full of anticipation and enthusiasm.  We had a tough draw in the first round against Winchester House, Beeston Hall and Spratton Hall.  A slightly nervous start against Winchester House ended in a 150-40 defeat but the team rallied extremely well to defeat both Beeston Hall 100-80 and Spratton Hall 120-50.  These points totals ensured that we qualified for the quarter finals in 6th place.  We moved venue for the QF and a different quiz master took charge for our encounter against Holmwood House.  We battled well but eventually succumbed to a defeat by 180-70 against a very strong team who went on to win the overall event.  However, the second match of the quarter final did pitch us against Witham Hall and the team answered extremely well and we ran out winners by 50-40.  However, our overall points total was not enough to carry us through to the semi final stage.  3 victories out of 5 rounds was a very commendable effort and the whole team acquitted themselves exceptionally well throughout the afternoon, both during the quiz and in their free time.  It was also a pleasure to spend some time with some former pupils, both Lauren S and Olivia H had tea with us before we departed for home.
