On Tuesday 25th April, students from Ellis Guilford competed in the Nottingham Debate Mate Cup alongside students from schools across Nottinghamshire. The contest, held at the University of Nottingham, saw two debating teams from Ellis Guilford take part against teams from the other schools.

During the contest, each team took part in three scored debates on different controversial topics before watching the exciting final debate. There was also a show debate featuring Debate Mate mentors and our own Miss Wignall!

Ellis Guilford Team A won two out of their three debates and took part in the final of the competition, where they took home second place medals for their arguments, speaking style and debating skills.

This event was the culmination of weeks of hard work from the students who have been learning and practising debating skills with mentors from the University of Nottingham.

Well done to everyone who took part!
