Recreational chess is held every Monday as part of the school's P7 programme. Gordon's also holds internal competitions in the game and chess matches against other schools both locally and nationally.

A partnership with Camberley Chess Club, which was formed in the 1920s, allows all chess skill levels (beginners, casual, league and tournament players) at Gordon’s under the age of 18 free membership to the club and has put competitive chess and training at Gordon's firmly on the map.

The club has teams in the Berkshire and Surrey Border Leagues, playing Standard and Rapid play rates and in 2021 was awarded English Chess Federation Club of the Year.

Gordon’s now hosts monthly chess training by an English Chess Federation (ECF) registered coach and a senior members of Camberley Chess Club as well as competitions in the Band Room (from 6.15pm to 8.15pm on the first Tuesday of the month) for any student of all year groups interested in improving their chess skills.
