A school in Bushey is through to the regional final of the Institute of Ideas Debating Matters Competition.

Queens' School will face five other schools from around the region when the debate takes place tomorrow. 

Supported in the region by the Medical Research Council (MRC), the all-day debate contest will see the Cambridge Research Institute transformed in to a hotbed of ideas and discussion, as well as world-class research.

Debaters from the schools will have to answer a series of difficult questions from a panel of judges and members of the audience.

Queens' School has been compiling research to argue their position of tough matters including whether the UK should ban the smacking of children, whether commercial surrogacy in developing countries is exploitative, and whether attempts to radically expand the human lifespan should be welcomed or feared.

If Queens' is successful the debate team will move on to the national final of the competition to be held from June 27 to 29 at the British Library.
