Huge congratulations to our 2 The English-Speaking Union competition teams for making it through to the next round!
Both teams performed brilliantly in their heats earlier this term, debating the topics of childcare and prescription charges, and the next round will take place in the Spring term.
The prestigious ESU-Churchill Public Speaking Competition, sponsored by the International Churchill Society, is the largest such contest in England and Wales, with around 400 teams (each comprising a speaker, questioner and a chairperson).
The different roles allow students to practise and excel in different skill sets, and the competition’s unique format, which pairs the speaker from one school with the chair and questioner of another, encourages quick thinking and relationship building.
Most importantly, it’s great fun and a terrific way for students to develop their oracy skills in a friendly, supportive environment.
