Every year, Challoner's hosts the school version of University Challenge. This year we had guests from Haberdashers' Aske's Boys, Oasis Academy and others. The questions were very challenging, and our B and C teams were knocked out in the early rounds of the competition, but our outstanding A team progressed into the finals. Parents were left biting their nails as we narrowly lost to Aldwickbury. We needed to beat Haberdashers' by 30 or more points to win the competition.
It was a close encounter between DCGS A and Haberdashers' Aske’s A. Everyone in the audience was amazed by the questions that both teams answered correctly. DCGS edged a narrow victory of 30 points and won the competition on points difference. 'It felt amazing to win such a great competition,' was the general view from the team An outstanding performance from everyone involved.
