Going through to the semi-finals are budding geniuses Connor Bright, 8, Peter Kittel, 9, Jack Meddows-Taylor, 10 and William Grout, 10.
They scored an impressive 2185 points which stands them in good stead for the semi-finals.
Deputy Headteacher, Caroline Sweeney said: "We are very proud of the boys who came through from behind to achieve a comfortable win. The children are thrilled and are looking forward to the next stage — the semi-finals In May."
During the heats, the pupils used wireless handsets to answer 40 challenging general knowledge questions. The entire quiz was projected onto a big screen which was viewed by the other teams and their supporters.
The competition is the largest in the country with more than 300,000 youngsters taking part.
