English Speaking Board (ESB)

Each year children from Year 2 upwards are entered for the prestigious ESB competitions.

Pupils recite a poem from memory, read a passage from a favourite book and prepare a talk on a topic of personal interest. Additionally, all children have to demonstrate their ability to listen to each other’s presentation and ask sensible and pertinent questions at the end.

Each year all children receive well deserved high praise and marks for their performance.
