Group Chess Lessons

Chess courses are now being offered on Zoom for beginner/intermediate, and for intermediate/advanced players.

Lessons are offered to juniors aged 7 – 16; we may consider older and adult players in the future. The first lessons will be two short courses of three weeks in December 2020.

Pupils should have paper, pencils, pens, chess set as well as a computer or laptop that can use “Zoom”. Pupils should also have access to Chess.com and have a copy of the course book, “Beginner to Winner in Two Months” by Michael Basman. If you do not already have a copy of this book, it is obtainable here.

You can sign up to the course of your choice below. Limited number of places for each of the courses, so it is prudent to book early.
