After practices which have involved over 30 pupils, and have been running since late September, our latest team for the annual Kids’ Lit Quiz competition (to be hosted by King's Wimbledon on Monday 26th November) has finally been selected. We have been entering this extremely tough competition since 2010, winning the South London Heat previously in 2016 and coming third on two other occasions.
Our ‘A’ team includes Oscar, Emma and Atitiya (all year 8) and Alex (year 7). Our 'B' team features Imogen, Isabelle and Annabel (all year 7) and Hope (year 8). Qualification for the teams has been very competitive and these pupils finished in the top eight after a 50 question quiz.
Everyone has been fantastic in the practices and we hope to do well in the South London heat; last year, this was the biggest heat in the country with almost 50 teams competing. We will be attempting to match last year's position and hoping to mix with the top schools again.
