Students Vote Overwhelmingly to Remain in the EU

Posted on 19th May 2016

EU Referendum

In anticipation of the forthcoming EU Referendum, Hereford Sixth Form College's well established Debates Society held a 'Question Time' style event and online vote, where students have chosen overwhelmingly in favour of remaining in the European Union.

It was a packed event where students on each side presented their respective cases and then faced questions from an audience of over a hundred students.

After a hard fought debate, the College-wide online poll resulted in 77% in favour of remaining to 23% in favour of leaving the EU.

Enrichment Co-ordinator Marco Martinelli said “The enthusiasm and arguments from both sides was a pleasure to see. It was a hard fought debate, but the result reveals a definite positive view of the British membership of the EU amongst young people”.
