Virtual Debating Club

Our Virtual Debating Club begins soon for students in Years 9-10 and Years 12-13.

We will be running a six week introduction to debating course for year 9 and 10 students, and year 12 and 13 students from November onwards.

This short course, delivered by Student Ambassadors (current University students) and staff, will provide you with the opportunity to develop essential skills such as critical thinking, communication and creativity through fun and engaging debating activities.

  • Starting on Thursday 12th November, the Year 9 and 10 club will run on Thursdays for 6 weeks from 16:30-17:30.
  • Starting on Wednesday 11th November, the Year 12 and 13 club will run on Wednesdays for 6 weeks from 16:30-17:30.

You will be practicing your debating skills by learning how to construct strong arguments, and applying them in structured debates. You don’t have to be a confident speaker, or have very strong opinions; the only thing you need is to be willing to learn and participate! The sessions will run through the platform, Zoom.

Please email if you have students who would be interested in signing up to this multi-school club.
