A well Debated Win for School House

The house debating competition was won by School House in yesterday’s final, where they opposed the motion ‘This House believes that no prisoner should have the vote’. Smith was the other team that reached the final after the heats. The judging was carried out by former pupil Alex Martin, who is the president of the Exeter University Debating Society. Mr Martin also conducted a Debating workshop for our Sixth Form debating team after the competition, which we hope will be the first of many. Bea J, Mathilde I, and Evie M demonstrated exceptional leadership and organization in successfully organizing and running the competition with great energy and enthusiasm.

The teams were as follows:

School – Bea H, Bea F, Alice H, Oscar L

Smith – Matt J, Gwen M, Ben N

Vinter – Katie LS, Harriet B, Louis T, Megan D

Wicket – Elowyn, Percy
