Kevin Whelan, Gavin Simpson and Peter Clift, who work at Dame Alice Owen's School, had made it to the semi-finals of BBC2's Knowitalls.
But in the show screened yesterday (Thursday) they failed to win a place in the grand final.
Gavin, the head of economics at Dame Alice Owen's, described their run to the semis as "very enjoyable".
