SME Solicitors is again sponsoring the RGS Worcester debating team for this academic year.
RGS Worcester and SME Solicitors have a long-standing relationship going back many years and the firm is always pleased to show its support for school activities. SME was involved when RGS debating was set up a few years ago and is delighted to be able to assist again.
Ian Stirzaker, Senior Partner at SME Solicitors says: “This is a community initiative that, as a firm, we particularly love. The RGS teams now raise the profile of Worcester at national level and are impassioned, reasoned debaters. SME has long had close links with RGS and we feel that this is a meaningful way to encourage and support their talented, local students. We intend on getting involved in debates and related events to quite literally put our mouths where our money is, so to speak!”
John Pitt, Headmaster of RGS Worcester, added: “We are very grateful to SME for sponsoring our debaters again this year. The pupils had their most successful year ever last year, becoming ‘Champions of the West’, winning a national debating competition and qualifying for both the Oxford Union and Cambridge Union Debating Finals’. Debating is such an important skill for the pupils to develop and their ability to think on their feet is really impressive. RGS Worcester is hoping to do even better this year and SME’s support will encourage the students to keep aiming high.”
