Our Debating Workshop aims to increase primary school pupils’ confidence about offering their opinions and encourage them to consider the views of others.

Run on a Friday afternoon by four of our pupils at the primary school, the one-hour workshop introduces the concept of formal debating to the schoolchildren. Working in small groups, the children are given practice in public speaking skills and challenging others’ points of view, and are encouraged to back up their arguments with factual evidence. The workshop is suitable for groups of 20 to 30 Year 5 or 6 pupils.

“I just wanted to feedback that the two KES pupils who visited us on Friday were outstanding! They were incredibly organised and professional and adaptable! I was extremely impressed.”
