Richard Weekes Chess Academy - Herne Hill

There is clear evidence to demonstrate that children who learn chess perform better in school, have improved calculating ability, are more imaginative, creative, and self-motivated. Did you know that chess and reading are decision-making activities.

Your child will learn the basic rules of chess and how the chessmen move and capture. Once they are comfortable with these concepts they’ll learn how to start a game and then be introduced to ‘check’ and ‘checkmate’ techniques to complete a game.  Lessons will be conducted using a ‘hang up’ demonstration board as this helps to encourage questions and discussions and also improves concentration, visualisation and focusing abilities.

I use chess to strengthen children’s minds as it’s one of the best games that develop logical, precise thinking. Children will get better at analysing problems and making choices.
