Ellesmere College


The power to persuade is highly respected and there is no better way to master this art than through debate.

A competitive debate is a challenging and highly rewarding activity for those who become involved in it. Ellesmere College students have the opportunity to join the Debating Society where they are encouraged to develop presentation skills and the ability to construct logical arguments.

Many of this nation's top lawyers, business executives, doctors, engineers, and elected leaders were involved in school debate, and for good reason. Debating skills help pupils get ahead and stay there.

Students at Ellesmere College are provided these opportunities as part of the School's Academic Enrichment which aims to enhance their educational development. The Debating Society develops students research and analytic skills, from traditional library research to the Internet.

Debating at Ellesmere College isn't just restricted to House competitions; pupils take their experiences over to Europe for the Model United Nations Conference where debaters compete alongside students from top institutions around the world.
