National Debate Team

The home of the national schools debating team for England

What we do

National Debate Team (NDT) is a registered charity that promotes the learning and growth of young people from all backgrounds through formal competitive debating.

We do that chiefly through the selection and training of the national schools debating team for England. That team competes in the annual World Schools Debating Championships, promoting international understanding and dialogue, supporting the development of young people's skills, and inspiring more young people to take up debating and excel at it.
