Yesterday we ran a celebration day for the six schools taking part in the University of Northampton debating club project. We were so impressed to hear about how all the schools have taken steps to embed debating in their lessons and as an extra-curricular activity.
The schools took part in a friendly competition, debating everything from footballers’ pay to the death penalty. After some tough debates, Kingsthorpe College were crowned champions.
Well done to all the students who took part for such a fantastic day of debating. A huge thank you to Northampton International Academy for hosting the day, and to the University of Northampton for supporting and creating this programme.
