The PiXL Up For Debate Regional Championships are underway. We have held rounds in Newbury, York, and London, and after Easter we have rounds in Nottingham and Northampton. Over 200 schools entered the competition, but only 8 will go through to the masterclasses and finals day.
Teams have debated a wide variety of topics, including banning homework, televising criminal trials, and allowing performance enhancing drugs in sport.
A huge thank you to all of our judges for making these days possible and thank you to Downe House School, St Peter’s York, Ibstock Place School, University of Nottingham, University of Northampton and Northampton International Academy for hosting the championships.
