Debating Society
Debating presents a challenge to stand up, speak and to deliver a coherent and well-formed argument to an audience - Something our students do very well at.


For a number of years now, students have represented Kingsbury High School in the regional rounds of the Oxford Union and Cambridge Union Debating Competitions, And we are delighted that one of our debating teams made it to the final of the Oxford Union Competition in 2016, held at the Oxford Union.

Previously, our students have beaten off local competition from competitive independent and grammar schools to get through to the Cambridge Union final at the famous Cambridge Union House.

Kingsbury High's Sixth Form has been represented at Eton College, St Paul’s Boys and Haberdashers’ Aske’s Schools for Boys and Girls. Members of staff chair lunch-time debates which attract large and often vocal audiences.
