Pupils had their say on the major international political issue of the moment at a debate in Cambridge.
Eight Wisbech Grammar School pupils debated Russia’s relationship with the European Union in a competition organised by the European Youth Parliament at The Cambridge Union Society.
The school was one of nine teams from schools and sixth form colleges across East Anglia which took part in the competition, which also included debates on the importance of immigration to the EU, fishing and fish stocks, employment and entrepreneurs.
The winner, who will go through to the national finals, has yet to be announced.
Tim Chapman, head of politics, said: “It was an exciting day out for the members of the group, who honed their debating skills and pitted their wits against other top schools.”
