Devon’s Next Free Thinker Competition

Devon’s Next Free Thinker Competition

Our winning House Debating team went to Petroc to compete against four other local schools – South Molton, Ilfracombe, Bideford and Torrington – on Friday 9th February.

The students excelled throughout the day, impressing other students, teachers and even out-debating the Exeter Uni students they were being trained by. They won the first round which ensured them a pass to the semi-final, and proceeded to outscore every school they competed against across the day, becoming the clear champions of the first North Devon’s Next Free Thinker competition.

We were so proud of them – they were amazing and very impressive. A special mention goes to Neve Williams, who won Speaker of the Day, and Romy Cooper, who came as a student judge and won Judge of the Day.
