Pupils from Brandeston Hall took part in the Inter Prep School General Knowledge Quiz Championship last Tuesday.

A selection quiz was held to decide the team to represent the school, with James Aldous (captain), Heather Alabaster, India Prince and Etty Hayward - the winning children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 - going forward to battle for a place in the regional heats at Langley Prep School.

Several schools from across Norfolk and Suffolk attended the event.

The teams were provided with a hand-held buzzer which they used to select their answers after conferring as a team.

A school spokesperson said: “The Brandeston team worked well together. It was clear they had a cohesive approach to their responses.
