20th March 2016 — Congratulations to St Francis (Pewsey, Wiltshire) pupil Ben McCluskey (Year 8) winner of the recent National Prep Schools’ Quiz Challenge competition.
Ben's broad general knowledge was put to the test in the national prep schools’ Quiz Challenge competition which is organised by SATIPS. Ben wanted to improve on his performance in the junior section of the competition in which he was place second nationally in 2014. This he managed to do, by answering correctly a total of 80 searching questions out of a possible one hundred, making him the overall winner of this year’s senior competition.
For this Ben won a very generous Amazon voucher. This follows the success earlier in the term of the St Francis Quiz Team, which through Ben’s captaincy won the Wessex Junior Schools Quiz Championships.
