About Organisation

CSC delivers chess via curriculum time lessons or through the traditional extra-curricular chess club. Children are taught by one of their trained tutors, who all have Enhanced DBS clearance, progressing from the rules of the game to foundational tactics and strategy over 30 weeks. They acquire a life-long skill, opening up an affordable and enjoyable game of limitless depth. Schools receive chess sets, teaching and learning resources and entry to school activity days at the London Chess Classic. Staff are offered free places on tutor training courses, enabling them to lead the lessons. Their programme was recognised with the Sports & Recreation Alliance Innovative Project Award.

Alongside direct teaching, Chess in Schools provide a range of support to schools, including free chess sets, tutor training and use of the CSC curriculum. We also run a growing network of chess clubs in libraries.
