Debating & Academic Societies

Debate

Solihull School has one of the largest debating programmes in the country. With over 250 students involved in debate, the school runs weekly debates in the Junior School, Lower School, Middle School and the Sixth Form. In addition to this, the school has a highly successful competition squad that competes in competitions across the country. 

Many of the programmes are run by the highly prestigious Debating Committee, which is currently led by the Debating President with the assistance of Mr Anderton, Ms Harford, Miss Evans and Dr Spratley.
