Hodder Education

Hodder Education has been involved with the Debating Matters competition since the very beginning and is proud to be the prize sponsor. The synergy between Hodder Education, Debating Matters and schools is obvious; encouraging young people to think and develop their knowledge, opinions and perceptions is clearly a joint goal. As one of the top secondary school publishers in the UK, Hodder Education provides books and online services across the curriculum and is the market leader in History, Science, RE, Business Studies and Citizenship. They know the importance of providing pupils with the best resources and are keen to help schools by offering nearly £20,000 of books to runner-up and winning schools each year. Visit for more details.

This year’s Regional Final winners will receive £500 worth of book and resources of their choosing for their school from the current Hodder Education catalogues. The runners-up at each Regional Final will receive a schools subscription to Hodder Dynamic Learning, which will run until the end of 2015.
