The Winners of the 2023 Sheriffs' Challenge

On Wednesday 8th March, a team of Sixth Form students from Mulberry School for Girls competed in the Sheriffs’ Challenge 2023 debating competition at the Old Bailey, discussing the topic ‘Post-Covid, the City will change beyond all recognition’. The students had an incredible evening and were awarded the title of overall winners! The Sheriffs’ Challenge is an annual competition in which six Sixth Form students must research, write, and then present an argument on a topic that is given to them. The students had to progress successfully through the heats in order to secure their place in the final in Court One. They worked incredibly hard, practising in front of different groups of students at the school and in Year 10 assembly.

The team researched and reflected on the ways that Covid-19 has changed the City, including how flexible working has supported women to maintain their careers whilst also having children. To win was a phenomenal achievement and has already opened up offers for prestigious work experience opportunities. Well done team Mulberry School for Girls!

The FSG sponsoring company was the Worshipful Company of Chartered Accountants who also arranged various presentations in the City of London. The main “supporter” from the Chartered Accountants was Steven Whitaker.
