How else can students develop their confidence and communication?

In lessons at Meadowhead, students are expected to participate in class discussions. Teachers will normally use a “no opt-out” approach that means that everyone is expected to share their ideas verbally. This means that students develop their confidence in speaking and listening skills across all subjects. Students can also:

  • Join debate club – learning the art of formal debating
  • Choose to take a language at GCSE
  • Join drama club and act in a whole school production
  • Participate in an exchange trip – practising speaking and listening skills in another country
