We are delighted to share the remarkable achievements of the Dane Court Debate Club at their first ever tournament held in London.

Our dedicated teams from all key stages demonstrated exceptional skills as they competed against schools from across England. With 108 speakers and 444 speeches across the day, We are proud to say that all of our teams won in rounds 2, 3 and 4 of the tournament, engaging with challenging and relevant motions.

We are also incredibly proud to announce that our Key Stage 5 team achieved an outstanding second place overall after a thrilling and very impressive final. A truly remarkable feat for their first ever tournament.

We would like to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of every single student. We are incredibly proud of all their achievements not only showcased today but in their dedication to attending weekly debate club across the year - their continued participation demonstrates their willingness to challenge themselves and, as a result, make wonderful progress. We look forward to witnessing their continued growth and success in future debating endeavours. They are a credit to our school and to our community as a whole.

Developing knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world.
