Outstanding Students, Doing Outstanding things, with Outstanding Results

"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference." Winston Churchill

Congratulations to our Senior Public Speaking team whose performance at the recent ESU Regional Final was truly amazing. Also congratulations to Matthew Brough , who was Best Chairperson of the event.

Well done Matthew, Jake and Ciara your outstanding commitment, motivation and amazing ATTITUDE made you such “ a tour de force.

This year celebrating its 60th anniversary, 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 of all it’s fun, and a great way for students to develop their oracy skills in a friendly, supportive environment.
