Brentwood schoolgirl becomes U14 chess champ

Brentwood School chess sensation Nina Pert was crowned British U14 Girls’ Champion at the two-day British Chess Championships held in Milton Keynes last weekend.

Thirteen-year-old Nina was joined at the national championships by younger brother Max, having both qualified online over the summer.

Nina finished third overall, taking the U14 girls’ title.

Brentwood School chess coach, Robin Slade, said: “Nina and Max both played very well, outperforming their rankings which is especially impressive when you consider they were both playing one year above their age.”
