The Senior Certificate grade is the lowest of the senior intercollegiate debating grades. Teams must consist of only fifth, sixth, and seventh formers (Years 11, 12 and 13). It is designed for senior students new to debating, in comparison to the Premiers A and B grade, and the emphasis is on learning and participation.
Schools may enter up to three teams in the Senior Certificate Grade.
The Convenors for 2017 are Siobhan Davies and Georgia Bloor-Wilson
