Urban Debate League success at Dixons Fazakerley
Posted 31st March 2023
Since November, students from Dixons Fazakerley have been competing in the Urban Debate League: the esteemed national competition for youth debaters. The students have competed with schools across Liverpool, accumulating as many points as possible in an effort to secure a top 16 place nationally.
Each round was tougher than the last, but through hard work and determination, the students managed to overcome the odds and achieve an incredible victory.
Last week, the updated national league table was published and the top 16 schools were announced. Incredibly, out of all the schools who have been competing across the country, Dixons Fazakerley was placed 7th overall. This means that in June, the students will be invited to compete in the national finals of the Urban Debate League, alongside the best schools from across the country.
A huge congratulations to our amazing debate team, who once again, have shown that hard work and determination is the ultimate recipe for success.
