Public speaking and debating offers a fantastic way to improve our pupils’ confidence as well as encourage critical thinking. We take part in many public speaking and debating activities, both in and outside school.
- The Rye St Antony Sugg Cup, held once a year. This is always a highly-anticipated event in the school calendar when pupils from Year 2 upwards read their chosen prose (or poetry) in front of the whole school
- The Youth Speaks competition is hosted annually here at Rye St Antony, when pupils from other Oxfordshire Schools come and compete
- Various debating competitions are held throughout the year for both Prep and Senior School pupils
