“Craggy Islanders” emerge triumphant in epic SHSA quiz battle

Last Friday night (12th January) twenty-one intrepid parents and staff quiz teams battled it out in the school’s Lees Hall to win the coveted title of SHSA Sutton Quiz Champions 2024.

Parent teams the Craggy Islanders, Snow Idea, Risky Quizness and Winging it from Wimbledon faced off with SHS staff teams including Mr Chadwick’s Linguistic Legends, and Mrs Clarke’s 1884’s.

If you knew which female singer sang ‘White Flag’, who is Sachin Tendulkar or just how big Argentina is you’d have been in good company.

The evening kicked off with a quick fire round of global general knowledge questions posed by the Head’s PA and half of the amazing quizzing husband and wife duo, Clare Hayward and husband Graham.

Our catering team, Chartwells, hosted a delicious meal of traditional fish and chips at half time before the teams went on to battle it out for first, second and third place. The eventual winners were the formidable Craggy Islanders, closely followed by the SHS staff team, The Linguistic Legends and in third place, The Pesky Parents.

The evening raised an amazing £800 for the SHSA fund.
Thanks to all those who made the night a success.
