Model United Nations
Kingsbury encourages involvement in Model United Nations (MUN) events, where students act as delegates for specific countries at a simulated United Nations conference and propose solutions and action in tackling real world issues and problems.
The students learn a range of skills – such as teamwork, strategic thinking, negotiation, the drafting of documents and problem-solving – and have to demonstrate their willingness to present and defend their country’s best interests during debates. Sixth Form students take part in the annual CLSMUN at City of London School; and there are occasionally MUN opportunities for younger pupils, whether on Excel Days or at external events.
