    This week: Building work, Students Debate at Town Hall.



    Building Work


    At long last, our building work will begin after half term. This will affect the entrance area to the school, and the sixth form.

    There will inevitably be some disruption to movement around the school, but we aim to make daily life here as normal as possible. 

    Click here to see the images of the buildings after completion - we should have much more space and a really welcoming entrance to the school!



    Students debate hot topics at Town Hall


    Hot topics from international politics to vegetarianism were debated by Camden secondary students at the Town Hall.


    After three weeks of training and preparation to hone their debating skills, 24 students from William Ellis School, Acland Burghley School and Camden School for Girls went head to head at Camden Town Hall on 31 January.


    The Camden Debating Challenge was organised by Bluebelle Carroll, who is a member of Camden Youth Council and a student at Camden School for Girls. Bluebelle, who has set up a crowdfunding web page for the project, was supported by her fellow Camden School for Girls students and teacher David Gunn.


    Debaters were scored by a panel of student judges on their speaking style and strength of their arguments.

    Parents, friends and fellow debaters watched the two highest scoring teams, from Acland Burghley and William Ellis, compete in the Council Chamber, with Acland Burghley coming out on top.


    Bluebelle said: “To be able to speak clearly, coherently and confidently is such a vital part of life.”
