Last week the General Knowledge Quiz Team travelled to King’s Rochester for a challenging hour of quizzing on all manner of topics – heroes and heroines, food and drink, literature, science, maths, music and beyond. The New Beacon team was led by Sam R (Y8), supported by Hugh S (Y7), Chuye W (Y6) and Kyle L (Y5). They all acquitted themselves very well, finishing 3rd overall, scoring 57/90, only three points behind the winning team of King’s Rochester. As ever, the breadth and eclecticism of the knowledge of all competitors was impressive – well done to the team!
