Developing public speaking skills is an essential part of education and preparing students for university and work in late life. Having a space where they can do this in a structured environment builds confidence, knowledge and understanding.
At Central Foundation Boys School we have an illustrious culture of Debating.
We run a number of debating programmes to develop students ability to debate with eloquence and confidence. Volunteers from Hogan And Lovells law firm work with a group of our Year 7 cohort to develop and hone their skills in public speaking within small groups. We also run a Debate Mate core programme with students aged between 12 and 16 and Debate Mate + which is for Sixth form students. Debate Mate is a country wide programme in which hundreds of schools take part.
