We recently enjoyed our third annual Debating Competition at Brighton Girls. We welcomed back previous winners Kensington Prep and Brighton College, as well as new teams from Wimbledon High and Nottingham Girls.  

Teams went head-to-head on a range of thought-provoking issues such as Brexit, climate change, gender equality and social media. The staff and judges were impressed by the passion, eloquence and maturity of all the students – and by how kind, humble and positive they were towards their opponents.  

We’re very proud of our debating team at Brighton Girls and Miss Mackey has seen amazing progress from its beginnings three years ago.

Although the team did not make it to the final, they were fantastic hosts and represented the school fiercely yet gracefully.

Congratulations to Kensington Prep who deservedly went away with the trophy for a second time. We hope to welcome yet more teams next year.
