"The idea of developing communication skills and articulacy is something I personally, and the school, are really passionate about. If we can develop those skills at Key Stage 3 then as students move up the school it will have a huge impact, not just in terms of academic outcomes, but also in terms of cultural capital and the doors it will open to them when they move into wider society."

Tanya Coleman


“I’ve seen students who are sometimes quite reticent to speak, people who are not natural leaders, now taking on a leadership role in discussion. They are following each other’s examples and developing the technique of inviting peers to speak and making sure everyone is contributing. I’ve also been surprised to see students taking on dramatic roles within a discussion, almost taking on a ‘persona’ to improve a discussion. I think that’s an important life skill you use in job interviews and presentations.”
