Well done to our debating team who have made it to the final of the Oxford Union Schools’ Debating Competition

Gresham’s has had more success in competitive debating, this time in the Oxford Union Schools’ Debating Competition. Two teams took part in the online Eastern Region heat. They discussed two motions with just 15 minutes preparation time for each: using AI to assist school work and affirmative action for men in female-dominated occupations. Kitty R and Aziz M did well in the competition, but the other pairing of Miranda H-S and Eva O’D went even better, being one of the best six teams on the night and qualifying for Finals Day in the Oxford Union in March. This is the second year running that we have had a team make Finals Day and also the second successive year for Miranda.
