Jack Petchey’s Speak Out Challenge

30 of our Year 10 students took part in a public speaking workshop with a trainer from the Speaker's Trust, arranged in conjunction with ARU and The Jack Petchey Foundation. This will lead to an in-school competition for the best speaker, leading to a regional heat. Jack Petchey’s Speak Out Challenge is a programme managed and delivered by Speakers Trust, the UK’s leading public speaking organisation and is supported and funded by the Jack Petchey Foundation. Their aim is to amplify young people’s voices by building confidence, developing skills and creating platforms for young people to share their stories and ideas to empower not only themselves but each other.
