Debating Club

Debating Club

Our debating club meets every Tuesday and Thursday at lunch time.

Our team is currently taking part in the National Educate Together Secondary School debating competition. In this competition, our students use their skills of persuasion, public speaking and critical thinking to communicate their points effectively.

Our students also gain experience judging, chairing and timekeeping for debating competitions between other schools, allowing our students to practice fairness and active listening.

What are the Benefits of Debating?
  • Improved critical thinking skills.
  • Pupils acquire better poise, speech delivery, and public speaking skills.
  • Increased student retention of information learned.
  • Improved listening note-taking skills and increased self-confidence.
  • Enhanced teamwork skills and collaboration
