Debating Society (Symposium)

What are they?

Symposiums originate from ancient Greece and the purpose was to discuss topics. Allowing everyone to offer opinion and thoughts on the definition of different topics. The group debates, and discusses topics that are given to them the week before. They then go off and try to research the topic and should be prepared to discuss their opinions, views and definitions in the Symposium.

The idea is to encourage, free-thinking, critical thinking, Socratic questioning, debating and public speaking.

What will the course cover?

We will debate a multitude of subjects; freedom of speech, statutes, good, beauty, books vs screens, social media and much more.


As this is new, for this year, all we ask for is £5 per class attended. This will be totalled and billed at the end of each month.

If you are feeling generous we are accepting donations through Patreon.


The symposium starts at the beginning of the academic year in September 2020 and runs through out the year. Eventually finishing on week 35 of the school year.

The symposiums are on Wednesday from 1 pm to 2 pm.
