War of the Words

Academic Extra Curricular

On Friday 16th November, Trent College hosted ‘The War of the Words’, a French debating challenge organised by Business Language Champions. In two teams of four, members of our Sixth Form French classes competed against six other independent schools in the East Midlands. The performance of our students was impressive - both teams won their first round debates, but unfortunately lost narrowly in the second round. Ratcliffe College went on to beat Repton School in the Grand Final. Roger Helmer, MEP spoke at the event about the importance of communication skills in the global work place. In addition, there were professional training sessions in public speaking, as well as the opportunity to talk to international business people.
