Today, on Thursday 28th March, The Oaks Academy sent two keen debating teams to Cranage Hall. This was to engage in a Debate Mate session with the school’s trust and showed the passion and resilience that our year 9 and year 10 students have. Mr. Jessup is proud to announce that, despite not getting into the final two positions, The Oaks Academy did superbly well. Our 16 students narrowly missed out on making the final and were disappointed by the fact that they did not get those last few points. Mr. Jessup and the Debate Mate staff, however, were extremely proud. Winning 3/4 of the debates that they engaged in demonstrates the hard work and dedication that our cohort can shower under pressure. They inspired, they believed, they achieved.
