2. Advance Notice: Annual Debate – Old Scholars v School Team – date to be advised

We are pleased to announce that the Old Scholars v School Debate is to become an annual event!

Readers may remember the Great Debate during the Centenary, when three judges, all former students, took on the School Team to debate the lowering of the voting age to 16.

The School Team prevailed, convincing the judges that they weren’t ready (or interested enough) to vote. Thanks to Blissenden Lawyers, we will see the School Team take on a team of former students.

Do you have an idea for a topic? (We already have some but would like to hear your thoughts.)
