Debating is an invaluable skill to learn and our club aims to give students the chance to develop key analytical and public speaking skills in a fun and relaxed environment. Students work together to debate a range of issues, from the topical questions of the day to the abstract and more obscure. We use a variety of debating techniques to enable students to develop their knowledge of controversial issues and current affairs, whilst also developing their confidence and a sense of team spirit.
As well as having a lot of fun debating with each other, students also take part in inter-school events and competitions. Debating is open to everyone from Years 7-11 and anyone can suggest a motion for debate. We welcome new members at any point during the school year.
The Sixth Form Oxbridge Competitive Debating Society meets on Monday after school.
