Primary Teachers Promoting Chess

Lichess Chess Club for Teachers

Ficheall organises an online chess club for primary school teachers through the platform. No video calls. Just online chess on your device of choice where you play 3 or 4 short games with other primary teachers in a mini-tournament. Many teachers say it helps take their mind away from school. Some teachers say they just want to improve their chess and beat that student who believes they’re the best in the school. One teacher said they want to eventually take a career break and dominate the chess world for the next 20 years! Whatever your reason might be, try it once before you say no!

We play on Monday evenings from 9 – 10pm during term time.

To join the online chess club, teachers are not obliged to be promoting or facilitating chess in their own school. Primary teachers who have not registered with Ficheall previously are just as welcome as those who are familiar with the Ficheall network.
