The Adelphi is a sixth-form Debating Society which meets weekly as far as possible and has occasional debates with girls’ schools. In the course of a year, teams enter external competitions, such as those run by the English Speaking Union, the Oxford Union and the Cambridge Union; sometimes the School hosts preliminary rounds for these competitions and rooms are filled with lively argument!
