St Paul’s Win MK Schools Parliamentary Debate Competition

St Paul’s have been crowned champions of the Milton Keynes Schools Debating Competition in the Houses Of Parliament for the first time ever.

The competition has been running for 12 years with schools battling it out for a place in the Westminster final.

This year’s final debate between St Paul’s and Ousedale was on voter identification being mandatory for all UK elections.

Each year, 16-18 year old students representing their schools in Milton Keynes are put through their paces as they debate on policy motions covering a diverse range of subjects.

Ben Everitt, the MP for Milton Keynes North, commented, “It’s been a pleasure to get involved with the competition for the first time and I was so impressed by students from so many schools across Milton Keynes.

“Congratulations to our overall winners St Paul’s, they are a credit to their school and to MK.”
