World Schools Debate


Congratulations to current student, Sheikh Srijon (UWC Atlantic College), class of 2018 from Bangledesh, who has been selected to once again represent Wales at the World Schools Debating Championships that will take place in Zagreb from 17 -27 July 2018. This is one of the most prestigious debating competition in the world featuring some of the most skilled orators and thinkers of their generation.

The selectors were very impressed by Srijon’s work and dedication during last year’s competition. He played a key part in the team’s success and showed a great ability to produce sophisticated, nuanced arguments and present them in a compelling way.

There is high expectations for Team Wales and we believe that Srijon will play a key role in a team continuing Wales’ proud history of success at the competition.The fact that a pupil of UWC Atlantic College is returning to Team Wales is a testimony of the outstanding educational environment UWC creates.


‘From the person who donated £20, to the person who donated £2000 - thank you. I am extremely grateful and indebted… I will do everything in my power to make sure that the contribution made is going to mean something more…’
