Noisy Classroom: Outreach Debating Project

From 15 January our Year 5 and Year 6 girls enjoyed a series of workshops provided in partnership with Noisy Classroom, an organisation dedicated to promoting the skills of effective oracy.


Nearly 100 girls from local primary schools (Preston Hedges Primary School, Abington Vale Primary School and Harpole Primary School) also took part in oracy workshops.

These workshops culminated in a final day of debating on Friday 19 Janaury, where all of the local primary schools visited Northampton High School.This day involved workshops where debating skills were further cemented, lunch and a final debate, which was adjudicated by a team of 3 professional judges.

As a result of this scheme, the schools involved have expressed an interest in continuing with debating both inside and out of the classroom.
