Debating at the House of Lords

On Friday 16 November, we are taking eighteen of our most articulate and opinionated pupils to participate in a debate in the House of Lords. The debate will centre around opportunities for women in this country and across the globe. Our transport and accommodation costs are being met by the charity Plan International who are organising the event.

We are one of only twelve schools nationally to be given this opportunity, and our students will be debating in the main chamber of the house. Moreover, the debate will be broadcast live on the BBC Parliament Channel and live-streamed on YouTube. It promises to be a memorable occasion for all.
