For the fourth year running pupils from Haddenham Community Junior School have won through to the semi-finals of the National Inter-School General Knowledge Quiz.

Jake Scott (Year 6), Cian Burton (Year 5), Karensa Johns (Year 4) and Theo Weir (Year 3) made up the winning team in the Area Heat on Wednesday 6th January. They competed against other local schools in a nail-biting, very challenging quiz led by renown quizmaster Simon.

Parents and staff watched as they pulled through in a close competition.

Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Caroline Sweeney said "We're very proud of our team. Their amazing general knowledge culminated in a score of 1745 which puts them through to the next stage of the competition."

The competition is the largest in the country, with thousands of youngsters taking part.

This year the final will be held at the House of Commons.
