Perse Junior Schools’ Challenge Team Reach National Finals
11 May 2017
The Perse’s Junior Schools’ Challenge team have won the regional finals of the general knowledge competition, progressing to the national finals.
Reporting on the regional final, Team Coach Lilly Freeman said, “The team emerged victorious in a tough regional final against Hartismere School on Wednesday afternoon. The opposition fought hard and clawed back precious points in the infamous sound round, but the boys were quick to regain their stride, finishing with a comfortable margin of 590-350.”
Hoping to follow in the footsteps of the Perse Senior team’s recent success, Robert Rayner, Alex Maynard, Malachy Wallace and Shaaon Bhattacharya will travel to Hull in June to battle it out against schools from across the UK.
