Want to join a chess club but can't find one in your area? No worries. We'll start a club for you.


An innovative approach to
teaching students aged 5+. We teach greater chess skills and
concentration techniques.


Because we believe that students deserve to receive
the best possible
chess teaching that
we can provide.


Our teachers are experienced chess players. They share our philosophy and passion for the game. 


Our innovative chess programs and teaching materials allow teachers to tailor lessons to the child's individual learning. .


At lunchtime or after school.

Sessions are
30 minutes - 1 hour.


School sessions are paid for a term at a time and we have an internal grant program for students that wouldn't be able to attend otherwise. 

We work with schools to teach chess to children of all abilities and ages. If you think that your child would benefit from chess lessons through your school, we can contact the school on your behalf to get a club up and running.

If you are a passionate chess tutor and we don't have an opportunity at our existing clubs in your area, we want to hear from you. We will work with you to get a chess club running at a local school, sports centre or town hall. Get in touch and we can work together to make this happen. All our teachers are paid. 

We provide...


All equipment. This includes: sets, clocks demo boards, certificates, medals and printouts.


Chess Kid accounts for every student in the club and online assistance to student's parents


Access to our library of chess training puzzles, tactical exercises and fun interactive lesson plans


Ongoing support and training to ensure you feel confident delivering sessions for any given age group. 


We have our own public liability insurance that covers everyone in the team and we manage all other paperwork such as Enhanced DBS checks, termly signups and payments. 


We will also keep you updated on our chess socials where we share teaching ideas and get to meet others within the community. 

A word from the people who have started their own club through us

"I never thought I would be able to actually run my own club but with the support and training from the Mindful Chess team I'm proud to say we now have 15 regular students a week at our local town hall." - Elizabeth Taylor

"It can sometimes be hard to captivate young children with chess, so it's wonderful to get the opportunity to encourage young people to love the game - the Mindful Chess ethos is the perfect approach from which to do this." - Maxim Dunn
