Magdalen College School Quiz Challenge

On Friday evening, two Beachborough teams travelled to Oxford to compete in the Magdalen College School Quiz Challenge. The pupils, from Forms V and VI, pitted their wits against twenty teams from local prep schools, answering questions on History & Politics, Geography, High Culture, Science & Nature, Popular Culture and General Knowledge.

The standard was very high; many of the questions left the supporting parents looking confused and bewildered! Although neither team finished in medal positions, both teams held their own against some tough competition. ‘Beachborough 1’ shone in the General Knowledge round, ‘Beachborough 2’ had a strong finish in the Super Quickfire round and
both teams racked up high scores in the High Culture round. Well done to all those who participated and thank you to all the parents who came along to support.
