Secondary UDL Round Results!

Congratulations to all who participated in Rounds 1 and 2 of the Urban Debate League 2021! This was the first time that we held our national competition online with schools from across the UK competing in London, Manchester, Bristol, the West Midlands, and Liverpool!

Below are the top-scoring 50% of schools in the final league table, based on their scores from both rounds of the UDL. You can also find a further breakdown of the top-scoring schools from each region also!

The top 16 teams from the National Urban Debate League will be invited to their respective Grand Finals Day taking place during the week commencing the 28th of June.

IMPORTANT: There are several schools that still need to participate in a round of the Urban Debate League competition, which we have labelled with R1/R2 Pending in brackets after the school name. If a school has only competed in one round this year, we have doubled their score to rank them against schools that have taken part in both rounds. As some schools will be taking part in the catch-up UDL, the current league table is subject to change and will be updated on the 11th of June following the catch-up rounds.
