Oakham offered prestigious MUN status

21st November 2022

A team of Upper School Model United Nations (MUN) pupils are delighted to accept the invitation to represent a permanent Security Council member (UK) at the Wycombe Abbey MUN Conference in late January. They will also be representing Iraq, Romania and Lebanon.

MUN requires students, known as delegates, to put aside their own views and debate issues from the point of view of the various member states of the United Nations, working with others to pass resolutions that seek to tackle some of the most pressing problems facing the international community. They are also presented with a number of unexpected emergency scenarios. Again, they will have to respond to these in their roles as national representatives, dealing with everything from maybe a nuclear emergency to a coup in a failed state.

Laurence Ward, the Lead Teacher of MUN,  said, “This is a fantastic debating opportunity, which comes off the back of the highly successful MUN Manchester Conference in October.”

The Oakham Model United Nations is an academic activity, and Oakham pupils have represented over 50 nations in recent years.
