This web page - http://www.britgo.org/clubs/chs - 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. 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.

This is BGA event, not a CHS one. Mr +Mrs Harvey & 3 other BGA adults - including Alison Bexfield, the UK Youth squad captain - ran Go-teaching sessions, and 4 outdoor activities were run by PGL staff.

CHS Ranking List

Please take a look at the CHS Ranking List, to see where CHS players now stand in Europe
- e.g. currently the top CHS Go-player - Tom Bradbury (Y13) - is nearly in the Top 2,000 'EGF-placed' (European) players - out of all 44,327 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 (apols: it needs updating - work in progress!)
  • see the Youth Grand Prix if you've played in a 2018 tournament;
  • see the Annual DDK Grand Prix for players no stronger than 10 kyu at the start of this year;
  • 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.
