Debating Society

We have a thriving Debating Society which is part of the DEBATEMATE programme and is highly successful in local and regional competitions.  Debating is an excellent chance for pupils to develop:

 

  • public speaking skills
  • the ability to develop arguments and respond to arguments made by others
  • self-confidence
  • team work
  • research and literacy skills
  • the confidence to meet and compete against children from other schools

 

The pupils take part in debating competitions and receive coaching from skilled debaters.  They also have the opportunity to visit prestigious venues throughout the year – previous visits include the Saatchi Gallery, the RAC Club and the Royal Geographical Society.

 

Debating not only helps to equip our pupils with vital skills such as verbal intelligence and higher order thinking skills but also helps to raise their expectations and aspirations for the future.
