North West Plate Quiz Champions

Lancaster Royal Grammar School fought off top competition from around the North West to win the regional Junior Schools Challenge Plate Trophy.

Congratulations to Tom Duke, Will Thornton, Raphael Fox and Tom Anderton, for winning the Plate Trophy in the Junior Schools championship at Bury Grammar School this week.

They were the youngest competitors to take part and included two boys from Year 7 and two from Year 8. The quiz is similar in format to the well known University Challenge.

English teacher and quiz team coach Mr Rafferty said: “The boys performed superbly throughout the competition after suffering early defeats to Manchester Grammar School and Birkenhead they bounced back admirably beating Bury Grammar School, Cheadle Hulme and Bolton Boys' School in the process. This was a great achievement considering they were the youngest team in the competition.”
