Debate Mate

Debate Mate is an educational charity that runs after school debating clubs in schools across the country. University students work with children to give them the skills they may need when they’re older such as confidence, communication skills and thinking skills. Claremont now has two debate clubs with Year 5 and Year 6 children, they meet with their university student and an adult in school once a week and will take part in the Manchester wide Urban Debate League. This gives children the opportunity to debate topics with children from other schools and the chance to put their skills into practice.

Claremont's Debate Team recently took part in the Debate Mate Primary Urban Debate League. Claremont were in the top 50% of all primary schools after the first round of debates and the 5th best in Manchester!
