On Thursday 30th January 2014, Kingsbury High School hosted one of the first rounds of the Artemis Urban Debate League. Part of Debate Mate, the Artemis Urban Debate League is a cumulative tournament which takes place over three rounds across the country, and concludes with a finals-day competition for the top eight schools in the league.

Up to 100 students from Kingsbury High School, Capital City Academy, Convent of Jesus and Mary Language College, Preston Manor and Alperton High School attended the event. The students engaged in debates on challenging topics from the legality of spying to the viability of the death penalty.

Kingsbury High School will go on to compete in the next round which is due to take place in March.
