The Great Debate


We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting the London South regional heat for the Historical Association’s Great Debate, a public speaking competition for students aged 16-19.

Students will have five minutes to make a speech, presenting their argument in answer to a question. Last year’s question was “What was the greatest failure of the age of revolutions (1775-1848)”.

If you are a year 12 student and would like to register your interest for The Great Debate (Historical Associations) 2020, please fill out the below form. We will then e-mail you when details of The Great Debate (Historical Associations) have been finalised – we will only use your e-mail for this purpose.

Please visit the Historical Association’s website for more information and debate resources.
