At the beginning of this term in English, Year 9 have been writing and delivering speeches in class on a topic of their choice. On Tuesday 8 May, thirteen Year 9 students were selected to deliver their speeches to the whole year group. The standard of the speeches, both in class and in the competition, was very high this year with topics ranging from the recent local knife crimes to ‘Be Proud of Yourself’.
Three of the overall winners delivered their speeches in whole school assembly last Monday - a fantastic achievement.
