Ben and AdamThis weekend, Ben Stanley and Adam Mallis (both S1) won the Scottish round of the International Competition for Young Debaters (ICYD) featuring teams from all over Scotland.

The competition is open to all debaters aged 15 or below, so for two S1 pupils to win is a pretty remarkable achievement! Not only did Ben and Adam win the competition, but Ben was the top speaker in the country, with Adam coming third.

This win results in them qualifying to go down to the Oxford University International Championships in May. This is the fifth year in a row that a Watson's team has qualified for the Finals Day.
