Mastermind 2015: The Final

Finalists landscape
The final of this year's Mastermind competition was held on the evening of Tuesday, 17th March.

Seven pupils (all boys this year - next year girls?) made it through to the final, each choosing a special subject on which they were 'grilled' for 90 seconds by the Question Master, Mr Gale. They then had to face a further 2 minutes of quick-fire General Knowledge questions, which sometimes makes all the difference to the placings.

Interestingly, Evan, Max, Victor and Xan were in last year's final as well!

Congratulations go to Evan, who ran out the clear leader.
