The Junior Memory Championship™ is a nationwide memory championship for primary school children, which aims to promote the development of valuable memory skills.
Now in its ninth year, the Championship was founded by Jonathan Hancock, a former World Memory Champion, two-time Guinness World Record holder, author and deputy headteacher of a primary school in Brighton.
The Championship is a competition which searches for Britain’s rising memory stars, and is open to Year 6 pupils (10 and 11 year olds) from all over the UK. For a small, nominal fee, schools can register as many pupils as they like to take part. Once registered, schools receive a full range of simple yet effective learning materials, lesson plans and online training, making them better equipped to support their pupils and teachers to develop powerful memory skills and embed them in the curriculum.
The initial stages of the Championship are conducted online, with the top 20 performing pupils invited to take part in the grand final in London in June, where one will be named the national ‘Junior Memory Champion’.
