A superb House debating final

Worth School

Our annual House debating competition reached a high-quality conclusion on Friday evening as St Anne’s emerged triumphant in an all-girls’ House final against St Mary’s.

The evening showcased some of the best aspects of school life at Worth as our students spoke eloquently, debated fiercely, researched their information well and worked excellently as teams.

All 10 Houses took part in this year’s House debating competition and the level of competition was better than ever before. After two years of domination by the boys of Farwell, this year’s final was contested by St Anne’s and St Mary’s who debated the motion: This house believes that Brexit is a failure.

The judging panel consisted of guest judge Rosayln Wilton, deputy chair of the board of trustees at the University of London, plus Head Master Mr Stuart McPherson and Director of Music, Mr Lewis Brito-Babapulle, who previously worked as a lawyer.

Congratulations to St Anne’s for their success but also to St Mary’s for a great final and to all Houses who participated in the competition.

Worth offers a Senior and a Middle School Debating Society and has enjoyed a number of successes over the past 18 months including winning a national competition, the Ethics Cup, last year.
