European Youth Parliament Debate Competition


Recently Year 12 students attended the European Youth Parliament Regional Forum at Sheffield’s Circle Conference Centre, where they had the opportunity to debate issues of European politics with a variety of schools throughout Yorkshire. The team of 7 Year 12 students managed to win on the day despite all the pre-debate nerves and go on to complete in the national debate competition!

School Direct trainee Raven Tolson worked with the team throughout and commented after the victory:

“It was clear from the tireless effort of all the students that they were capable of winning the competition; the real victory was their active contribution in the current issues of the world they will one day inherit.”
