The French Debating Competition is open to all A Level French students (Years 13 and 14). The competition takes place in the spring term each year and is held at Queen’s University. Teams consist of three speakers, plus a reserve. Schools are given the motion to prepare two weeks in advance and then take part in a debate, completely in French, against a team from another school. Our school has enjoyed great success in this competition over the years, winning the Northern Ireland title in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010.
