Now in its eighteenth successful series, the questions are specifically designed to test the knowledge of late primary school children, aged between 10 & 12 years – with questions covering subjects such as English, Maths, Science, Geography, Sport, Music and Pop Culture.
Contestants have the chance to test their general knowledge and win prizes for themselves and their school. Host, Simon Reeve, leads the contestants through a maze of questions from the Year 6 syllabus.
A winning school is announced at the end of each week for the first nine weeks of heats with subsequent semi-finalists. Eventually, one team will be the overall winning school for the series.
