Coaching in schools

A number of experienced local chess-players are involved with coaching in Suffolk schools.   These include Steve Gregory (Whitton Primary), Andrew Shephard (Ipswich Prep), Paula Allen and Alex Sheerin (The Meadows Montessori) and Bill Mackintosh (Creeting St Mary and Bosmere Primaries).   David Green and John Barratt assist Bill Mackintosh on occasions.

But perhaps the most active is Saxmundham’s Mike Usher (pictured right) who receives some funding from Chess in Schools and Communities (CSC) to coach at two Ipswich schools, Ranelagh Primary and The Oaks, as well as two schools in Norfolk.

As SCCA President I am particularly keen to see more involvement with schools in the county.   Many schools will be willing to form chess clubs, provided an experienced adult can be found to run the club.   It’s also worth checking out the CSC website, to see if any Suffolk school has requested assistance.

Apologies for anyone not mentioned above.
