A group of students from King Edward’s School successfully put their general knowledge to the test to win the Schools’ Challenge National Plate 2022.

Eight teams took part in the National Finals held at Tonbridge School on Sunday, 24 April 2022. 

The team comprising Year 10 students Aaryan Singh and Surya Prasanna, and Andreas Ktori and Harry Rachman in Year 12 triumphed over all of the competition on the day to take home the title. 

Joel Abbott, chemistry teacher and coach of the team, said: “This is a fantastic result and I am delighted for the boys, who worked together superbly and remained calm under pressure.

“For another year KES can boast that we are one of the best schools in the country for our general knowledge.”

Schools’ Challenge is a national general knowledge tournament which tests pupils’ quick-thinking and determination, in a similar format to University Challenge. The Schools’ Challenge Plate is a repechage-style contest for teams who lost their matches in the quarter-finals of the national competition.
