The Birkdale Prep General Knowledge Quiz teams were at it again this week, entering the Regional Final of the Quiz Club National Championships.
Travelling to Bramcote Hills School in Nottingham, the two teams of four faced off against fourteen teams from across the Midlands. Displaying an incredible knowledge of topics ranging from the first woman in space to the Formula 1 circuit in Monte Carlo, one of the Birkdale teams led from start to finish and secured a place in the National Final at the Dominion Theatre in London in June. The second team also performed superbly, spending much of the contest in second place before being pipped by several schools towards the end in a bid to overtake their schoolmates, eventually finishing a very creditable fifth.
Not only did one Birkdale team win the contest, they also registered the highest score so far in the country. Not bad after twelve regional finals!
Huge congratulations to both teams and good luck to Aarnav, Zak, Noah and Alex in the National Final this summer – Birkdale’s sixth in eight years, having won the competition in 2017.
