Year 4 Competition

The Year 4 Competition Programme, in partnership with the English-Speaking Union,  has been running since 2017. It has expanded each year, with more schools and pupils enjoying the benefits of the training programme.  This culminates in a competition in Anglia Ruskin University, where the pupils have a platform to practise their public speaking skills. 

The competition in 2019 saw 30 teams from 24 schools take part, with over a thousand children attending workshops prior to the competition. The competition, hosted by Anglia Ruskin University, was a resounding success.

"What a wonderful day it was. I was so proud of the team and they are still beaming now. It was a lot of work but it paid off massively. The standard was so high I thought many of the teams could have won it. Your workshops were so motivating I am not surprised to see such high quality. Thank you once again for organising such a fantastic event"

Our Mission

Our mission is a journey (workshops) with a destination (competition) 

The workshops take each child on this journey of self discovery to learn how to use their voice in a confident way, foster a love of public speaking, and realise their capability as good public speakers. 

The competition is that platform where we see the social mobility gap narrowing. 

 Year 4 Competition in Action

Our year 4 competition is being rescheduled; we will be in touch.

We wish all our pupils and teachers a safe and healthy next few weeks.
