City Schools Debating Competition

On 27 February the City Corporation hosted a City Schools Debating competition. Six of the City Schools took part in the competition, including the City of London School for Girls, City of London Freemen’s School, City Academy Hackney, City of London Academy Southwark, and City of London Academy Islington. The debaters were Year 10 pupils, and they were put into mixed school teams and competed against each other across three debates. Audience members voted for the winning team, best debater, most entertaining debater, and best question from the audience. All the pupils and teachers thoroughly enjoyed the event, and are already looking forward to next years’ debating competition.
