About Us


Do you think your child needs an Internet Detox? Or learn to concentrate better? Or learn to delay gratification and think strategically?smile

You come to the right page and hopefully would like to join us.


We are part of the Russian School for Gifted and Talented (TRUST Community Interest Company UTR 11236439 ). Chess Club is a Community club that is open for children age 6-12.


If you opened this page and reached that far, then you know how good the game of chess is for our children. You probably also already know that delayed gratification is one of the few scientifically measurable skills that help children to succeed in life. Children who learn to wait and strategically plan ahead were scientifically proven to have more success in life (read about the Marshmallow test in our Fun Facts page). Those are the very qualities that the game of chess develops.


We meet in a child-friendly Altrincham Community Centre, THE HUB. Our children receive brief coaching at the beginning of the meeting and play with each other under supervision and help. They also encouraged to compete in larger Tournaments across Greater Manchester. Parents are very welcome to participate in the life of the club and stay with the children.
