Because registration for regionals ends on the 14th November, we strongly suggest that schools new to the Oxford Schools' Competition or unsure about participating sign up to the two earlier dates (the 2nd and 11th) as a taster so that they can decide on registration before the deadline.
Throughout the Autumn term, we shall be holding online debating workshops run by top-class competitive debaters from the Oxford Union.
These workshops are available free of charge for participating schools.
These workshops are intended for debaters of all levels. They are designed to introduce debating as a concept, and to cover the basics of British Parliamentary debating, as well as tips and tricks about debate stratergy, coming up with ideas, structuring speeches, and speaking with confidence.
These workshops may also include a 30-minute Oxford admissions talk and Q&A for interested students.
If you would like to register your interest in attending a workshop, please follow the link above. Preliminary dates are as follows:
Tuesday 2nd November
Thursday 11th November
Wednesday 17th November
Monday 22nd November
Friday 26th November
Wednesday 1st December
