Our International History Bee & Bowl team of Year 10's Adam and Thomas Wilson and Edward Braeckman and Year 8's George Braeckman are reigning European Champions in the Middle School category, this year they move up to the Junior Varsity section of the competition that took place at St Paul's Boys School in Westminster last weekend.

Despite being the youngest of the teams they progressed to the semi-final where they beat St Paul's C to take them to the final where they met City of London A, who were the only team to beat them in the earlier rounds. After a hard fought competition they lost by only 10 points, which would entitle them to go to Rome for the European Final but as this is this weekend they have unfortunately decided that are not going to be able to go and attempt to defend their title.

The team were even more successful in the History Bee competition, which is the individual section, where Edward won, Adam was runner-up and Thomas came fourth.

Congratulations to all of the boys on a superb performance.
