Public Speaking competition for GCSE English Students

During the first week of October, students from 10D1 and 10G1 were given the opportunity to take part in Jack Petchey’s “Speak Out” Challenge. The competition is a regional event for students from London and Essex schools. Its overall aim is to promote the skills, confidence and desire to speak in public. Students participated in a variety of lively workshops, turning the usually peaceful library into a hotbed of free-flying opinion and debate. It certainly looks like the school should expect a few success stories from next year’s English Speaking and Listening exams.
