There was an interesting battle tonight between World Kids' Lit Quiz champions Bancroft's School and first-timers King Edward VI School. After round nine both teams were locked level on the same total but it was Bancroft's School 1 that went on to win tonight by one point from King Edward VI. Bancroft's School 2 was third.
It was apparent that teams had improved significantly from last year and final scores reflected this.
Thurrock Council Libraries kindly hosted the event and their staff awarded the prizes.
The new venue at Corringham Village hall worked well.
