Year 12 Learn to Debate


Yesterday Year 12 attended an after school workshop at Kings’ School, Winchester, where they studied the format of British Parliamentary Debate.

Pupils had the opportunity to discuss motions such as whether it’s acceptable to torture terror suspects and whether there should be university admissions quotas for pupils from underprivileged backgrounds. The debates were lively but balanced and our students came away with a heightened appreciation for the skills of argument (…parents, you have been warned!)
