Dear students and parents,
Preparing for the future has never been more difficult. The world is increasingly volatile, uncertain and complex. Moreover, the competition for the best universities and jobs is tougher than ever. For example, almost all Cambridge applicants are predicted top grades, so being smart and knowledgeable is not enough for success neither in academia nor in professional life. At the same time, social and soft skills are in decline. But whatever the talent or area you are going to follow, if you want to stand out and lead, you need to be heard and listened to. What to do? How to make sure that you fulfil your potential? And obviously, how to prepare for the future not just as a worker, but also as a human, citizen and changemaker?
Educational research and our experience from working with thousands of most talented and ambitious kids all over the world say one thing.
Debating is your opportunity.
Debaters achieve better exam results, are more likely to study abroad and get a PhD, they go through interviews with ease and are more critical, active and creative in academic classes. Professionally they are great team players and leaders.
All our staff believes the same. Debating has the power to transform good students into great people. I hope you will become one of them.
