Why should I take part in the National Schools Quiz? The National Schools Quiz has the potential to set young minds alight with a thirst for knowledge. Having seen how computer games can enthuse children, using similar technology to expand a child’s knowledge of the curriculum in a fun and interactive way is a great way to increase learner attainment. The quiz also allows children to participate on a national scale and learn together.
