National Quiz Success

Birkdale Prep School attended the finals of the National General Knowledge Quiz, held at the Old Royal Navy College in Greenwich, London. The team came 7th in the country out of a total of 600 entries.

The regional heats were held earlier this year at Ashdell Prep School, where two Birkdale Teams participated. One of the Birkdale teams progressed to the National semi-final. In this round, the team travelled to Moorlands School in Leeds. The competition became a three-horse race between Birkdale, Manchester Grammar and Yarm, with Birkdale earning a place in the National Final.

At the final, after forty questions, Birkdale finished tied for seventh place. A fantastic achievement out of the 600 teams that had entered nationally!

 Mr Burch, Head of Birkdale Prep School said “Our boys were amazing. They kept their cool under pressure and answered some very difficult questions. We can’t wait for next year!”
