We meet at Garden Suburb Junior School, Childs Way, London NW11 6XU (Click here for a map) from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on Mondays during school term.

On most evenings children have a 30-minute coaching session in one of 5 ability groups, followed by a recorded game. The game is graded with the English Chess Federation. After 9 graded games have been played your child will get an official English Chess Federation grade so that you as a parent can assess improvement. Where possible the children's games are analyzed by one of the chess teachers or a stronger player at the club. Members range in age from 5 to 18 and include players of all abilities, from absolute beginners to accomplished champions.

The cost is just £12 per visit. Discounts available for paying a term in advance.
