Up For Debate Masterclasses
The 8 schools who will be taking part in the PiXL Up For Debate Final came to London for a residential debating masterclass trip on May 12th and 13th.
They took part in workshops that explored effective responses, building a case, ‘killer POIs’, and how best to successfully use language and physicality when speaking. On Friday night they were also treated to a fancy meal and then went to Wicked on the West End!
On Saturday teams took it in turns to debate and judge debates, helping them to understand exactly what the judges will be looking for at the final in July. There were also lucky enough to get some debating advice from current England coach Andrew Fitch.
We were so impressed by all the teams’ hardwork and can’t wait for the final in July!
