Bedales face challenging Schools’ Challenge

Bedales recently faced Round 2 of the Schools’ Challenge competition against Hurstpierpoint College, Brighton. It took place in the MFL classroom where the atmosphere was tense partially with nerves, partially with excitement. It was clear from the beginning that this was going to be a tough match. Hurstpierpoint College were very quick on our new buzzers ramping up an early lead. Noah Clarke-Hall (Block 3) then got us racing back with his amazing knowledge of Chemistry. There seemed to be a lot of Classical Music questions which left both teams stumped (sorry Will and Nick!). The game flew by and despite us scoring 10 more points than in our first round victory, we still lost to a very strong team 740 to 510. So unfortunately that is it for the Bedales General Knowledge Team for 2012. Thank you Peter for leading us and thank you to the parents’ association for the buzzers which we will practice at being sharper on for next year. We thoroughly enjoyed taking part!
