Uppingham on the Buzzer Quiz Competition

18 Nov 2015

Another valiant effort from the two Witham Hall teams at this year’s Uppingham on the Buzzer quiz. 

It was a competition which was, yet again, incredibly well organised and the usual warmest welcome extended to pupils, parents and staff from every member of the Uppingham staff who had organised the event.  Moreover, the terrific setting of the new Science block was very fitting and allowed for a smooth running of the competition. 

The Witham A team reached the semi-final of the main competition following much success in the early rounds and the quarter final, but narrowly losing to the overall winners Spratton Hall.  Witham B team tried their best in the preliminary rounds but a loss, a defeat and a draw meant they progressed into the Plate competition and again, losing narrowly to the eventual winners, Winchester House.

An example of a few questions:

  • ‘Who was the Prime minister during the Second World War?’
  • ‘What was the name of the three wise men?’
  • ‘What was the significant event of 1831?’

The team were as follows:

A – Richard Tomlinson, Alex Spragg, Matilda Craven and Georgina Eatch

B – Ollie Allport, Jake Lockett, Rose Brassey and Arabella Nolan

My thanks go to the parents who came along to support such a terrific event.
