Congratulations to Gunthorpe House who recently won the Form 3 House Speaking Competition.
Competitors had to research, write and deliver speeches on their given Current Affairs topics and Gunthorpe was awarded first prize for their discussions on the Gender Pay Gap.
Buchanans won the ‘best research’ category for their subject matter, which was Gun Violence in the US and the Best Individual award was given to Mark Lever in Chapmans.
Head of Middle School Mr James Robinson said, “The speeches were interesting and enlightening and it was great to see the students delivering them with flair and confidence.”
This competition is a good example of the framework of teaching and learning in the Middle School encouraging pupils to develop and improve communication and leadership skills beyond the exam syllabus.
