This year’s tournament will be held on the 15th January 2017 and will consist of 4 rounds of BP format debating, with a announcement of the top 16. Novices are defined as students who are in their first year of schools debating. Registration will cost £45 per team (we offer a 50% discount for state schools and Debate Mate teams).
The competition promises to be one of the largest schools competitions in Europe and a great opportunity for pupils to put their debating skills into practice against teams from across the UK and get great feedback from some of the best judges in the country.
The competition will take place at SOAS’ Main campus, which is close to Russell Square. The registration fee will be £45 per team.
We hope to see you all in January! And please feel free to pass this email on to colleagues at other schools who may be interested.
