Presentation Competition Year 12 and Year 13

The Business Presentation Competition will give pupils the opportunity to work alongside our student ambassadors and improve their presentation, communication and team-working skills. By having an opportunity to present, pupils will gain confidence in public speaking, develop their research skills, enhance their analytical thinking and learn to work under pressure and to a deadline.
