The English-Speaking Union believes every child should be able to make their voice heard. We believe that the ability to progress and to thrive in life relies on oracy – speaking and listening – skills, which are not currently a prominent part of the school curriculum. Our debate, public speaking and cultural exchange programmes help young people to engage with the world, to speak more confidently and to listen to and understand different points of view. These skills improve young people’s attainment, emotional intelligence and social skills, helping them to live their lives to the fullest


We organise and support public speaking competitions for Buckinghamshire Schools as well as other Oracy events. The aim of the branch is to raise money to both support local schools to enter these competitions as well as support students with education and study.
