Public Speaking Team Prepares For Regional Competition

Public Speaking Team


Earlier this term ten Year 10 students took part in an all-day workshop at Sussex University, developing their skills in public speaking.  The Public Speaking Workshop arranged by the English Speaking Union consisted of games, topical debates and ended with each student delivering a public speech, either as a speaker, questioner or chairperson.

After the success of the day, the BACA has secured a place in the Brighton and Hove English Speaking Union competition where a selected team of three of our students will compete against other local schools.  This round of the competition takes place in February, with the winners of each regional heat going through to the Grand Final at Churchill College, Cambridge, April 2019.

Our team of three are now busy practising their public speaking techniques!
