CoDA Debating Team Success

City of Derby Academy win the Derby and District Law Society Debating Competition

We are delighted and immensely proud of our City of Derby Academy Year 10 debating team who have won the Derby City debating competition. The team of Connie S, Amrit A, Simran A and Mohsin A fought off tough competition in the final to remain unbeaten for the whole year.

The final was judged by John Whitby – Mayor of Derby, Simon Stevens – President of Derby and District Law Society (DDLS) and Sue Jennings who is Head of Law at Derby University and they were all impressed with the quality of the preparation, research, logical reasoning and delivery of the debate.

The team are a credit to the school and themselves and they have made us all so very very proud.
