Last year’s Prep School General Knowledge Quiz Team finally got to take part in their National Final this week, despite having qualified last February!

Via a Zoom meeting with 47 other teams from all around Britain, our team of Aarnav, Zak, Noah and Alex answered questions on Shakespeare, Vexillology and even breakfast cereal! In a change to the usual format, the team had to answer individually, before their four scores were collated to make the team total. Incredibly, Zak managed to finish with the second highest individual score out of over 180 players!

Finishing with a brilliant team score of 1675, the Birkdale team couldn’t quite eclipse our National Champions of 2017 but ended up in fourth place out of over 812 teams who entered the original competition – a phenomenal achievement!

A huge well done again to the four team members.

Pupils at the Prep School are already looking forward to this year’s quiz competitions in Maths, General Knowledge and Science – preliminary heats for these teams will be taking place shortly!
