Online Group Classes

Weekly classes are a terrific way to learn chess as children make friends and enjoy competing against one another. Classes are based on strength, and as a child progresses, they move up classes. The following classes are available:

Sessions take place using Zoom and Lichess every week on the chosen day and time. A typical lesson involves teaching over Zoom followed by playing games against one another, applying what they have learned. Most classes have two coaches on the call and children get some one to one time with a coach to ensure they have fully understood what has been taught.

The first class is a trial to see if your child enjoyed the session and is free. Classes thereafter are £6 each if paid monthly or £5 each if paid termly. No refunds will be given once payment is made.
