Gordon’s School is pleased to announce the inaugural year of the SBF Festival of Public Speaking to take place at Gordon’s School on 21st April 2018 and co-hosted by the Royal Alexandra and Albert School.
Public speaking is a vital skill that students develop and use throughout their academic careers and in their everyday lives. Additionally, the impact that a confident and thoughtful speaker can have within classes and the wider school is invaluable.
The event will be a whole-day affair comprising a series of rounds whereby students get the chance to demonstrate their speaking skills via prepared speeches on pre-agreed topics as well as on topics provided on the day. Parallel individual Senior (KS5), Intermediate (KS4) and Junior (KS3) competitions will take place as well as a formal team competition (click here for details). Schools may enter multiple students or teams into each competition (details and rules to follow). This event is a State Boarding School event.
