Yesterday the TPS debate team travelled to Portsmouth University to participate in a city-wide debate competition against teams from Admiral Lord Nelson School, The Portsmouth Academy and King Richard School. They held their nerve in three gruelling debates on topics such as Animal Testing and whether voting should be legalised for 16 year olds in the UK.
The eleven-strong team won two out of their three debates, tying for first place with two other of the six teams. After deliberation from the adjudicators, TPS were declared the overall winners! The students from Years 7 to 10 took home a framed certificate and an immense sense of pride. Well done, team TPS (Sophie Honey, Morgan Glue, Freya Glue, Bella Hole, Euan Davies, Daniel Taylor, Lily Street-Woodward, Jessica Minton, Amira Darbin, Tom Reid, Mimi Millerchip
