Urban Debate League 2015

Kingsbury hosted the first round of the national Urban Debate League on Thursday 22nd January 2015, as part of the school’s link with Debate Mate. With five outside schools participating in two rounds of debate involving over 100 students, it was a really successful evening, and Kingsbury High School students showed themselves and Kingsbury in the best of lights.

The form was fantastic, with enthusiastic and skilled speakers from visiting schools Hertswood Academy; Convent of Jesus and Mary Language College; St Gregory’s School; The Bushey Academy and Greenford High School. Our four Kingsbury teams did very well, winning a number of debates, and members of Debate Club on the floor made fantastic points too.

Results will be published, along with Kingsbury’s ranking, once all the first rounds have been completed. You can find these soon on the Debate Mate website. The second round of the Urban Debate League will be in the spring term: we hope the standard will be just as high next time!
