Team Problem Solving Challenge

This unique competition is mainly conducted at school’s own premises. The idea is  find the key moves which deliver mate in the stated number of moves. There are two preliminary rounds and any team that scores full marks in both rounds will be offered a place at the final to be held in conjunction with the team challenge at Imperial College in April 2018. We do hope that you will have a go.
