Cambridge Debate Competition

On the 20th of January 2018, students from The Stockwood Park Academy attended the Cambridge schools debate competition, where they were able to debate in the Cambridge Union. The competition was a completely new experience, giving the students the opportunity to take part in a completely new style of debate with feedback from accomplished debaters. While there, they learnt the structure of Standard British parliamentary debate, acting as a government along with teams from other schools.

Overall, the competition was an amazing experience that was not only educational and helped develop their skills in debating, but was also undoubtedly fun and allowed them to explore the famous Cambridge Union and engage in thoughtful debate subjects with other passionate students.
