Three Sixth Form pupils have made it to the third round of the ESU Mace Debating Competition

Debating is already in full swing this term. Many congratulations to Sixth Formers Miranda H-S, Georgie C and Tillie C who progressed to the third round of the ESU Mace Debating competition by successfully defending the motion This House Would abolish trial by jury in the second regional heat held at Langley School. Only two teams progressed to the next stage of the competition, so this was an outstanding performance from three very talented debaters. 

The Year 10 and 11 Inter-House Debating Competition is also moving through the first round. Oakeley saw off the challenge of a strong Tallis team, successfully defeating the motion This House would make the study of mathematics compulsory until the age of 18. Howson’s also overcame Edinburgh in opposing the motion This House supports Scotland’s gender recognition reform bill
