** CHS **

This web page - - shows the BGA info. that relates specifically to CHS' school Go club.
It shows what's coming up, that's of interest to CHS students. CHS runs Go Clubs in the Juniors and in the Seniors. Junior School club meets on Tuesdays, after school (resuming in Sept. term). Senior School club meets in room L1.4, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, both at lunch-times and after school.
Below, you'll see some other activities that the keener Seniors (and occasional Junior) engage in.

Before school resumes in September

There are no CHS-related trips as such, other than the Summer camp (below). However, there are several tournaments where CHS will be represented by 1 or more people, & anybody is most welcome to make their own travel arrangements. These include:
A 2-day tournament in Scotland (of course, one can opt to play on just 1 day),
A 2-day tournament in Wales (run annually by Mr+Mrs Harvey - Daniel went before),
The "UK Go Challenge Finals" on Saturday 14th July, in Cambridge. This is the Finals for UK school and junior Go clubs and all other junior players. Free entry. Games played on 13x13 boards. Mr+Mrs Harvey may offer 3 car spaces, but the distance is too far for a minibus,
And, finally, a 2-week tournament in Pisa, Italy, to which Mr+Mrs Harvey, 2 CHS students, 31 UK players, & 1,200 others are going (one can attend for 1 week or just the weekend, and many beginners will be there, too).

Summer Residential Camp

Wedn. 29th to Fri. 31st August. Venue: PGL Caythorpe Court, Lincolnshire. Note the deadline - technically June 16th, but if missed by a few days we should still be able to add you in! This is an annual event, started last year. Then, 19 youngsters went, including 8 from CHS. Mr Harvey & 4 other BGA adults - including Alison Bexfield, the UK Youth squad captain - ran Go-teaching sessions, and 4 outdoor activities were run by PGL staff. Contact Mr Harvey with any queries, on martin.harvey at Entry details Photo & report from the 2017 camp


Sunday 23rd September. CHS will use 1 or 2 school minibuses, depending on the demand.
Usually this is a very popular trip, for CHS students.
Please watch out for the Parental Consent letter, which will need timely response.

CHS Ranking List

Please take a look at the CHS Ranking List, to see where CHS players now stand in Europe
- e.g. Zaki Betesh (Y12) is nearly in the Top 2,000 'EGF-placed' (European) players - out of all 42,746 Professionals, adults & youngsters! [But will he be the first from CHS to actually enter the Top 2,000 ?!]

Usual comments:

  • *** Parents MUST give consent via the Parental Portal, and in good time, for a student to be allowed on the school minibus ***
  • see the Junior Grading List for grades of all under age 18, who have played in a recent tournament & are 30-kyu or stronger.
  • see the Youth Grand Prix if you've played in a 2017 tournament; CHS' Tom B. & Amy U. won cash prizes for coming 2nd & 3rd, out of 84 players!
  • see the Double-Digit Kyu Grand Prix if you've played in a 2017 tournament; CHS' Tom B. came 2nd out of 92 adults and youngsters!
  • see the BGA Calendar for full details of events listed above (& those that aren't).
  • Ask Mr Winslow [Head of Physics] or Mr Harvey if you have any queries, e.g. re Go badges, transport, how to improve, what to read (esp. CHS library), Go on YouTube, buying equipment, getting Go leaflets, forthcoming events, foreign tournaments ... you name it!
  • see the BGA junior section for all UK Youth news.
