Trust Debating Competition

A big thank you to both Woodstock Primary Academy for hosting and to Rachel Barker, Assistant Principal at Babington Academy, for organising our first Trust Debating Competition! 

Rachel Barker, Babington Academy

The reason behind it was we wanted to provide students the opportunity for debating that was accessible, as many of the debate competitions that exist are for Sixth Formers. We also wanted to support the development of oracy with our students. The aim being for students to feel more confident and gain public speaking experience in a more professional setting, to help prepare them for life beyond school.
