Thank you for your interest in ESU Competitions - a distinct opportunity for your students to develop vital oracy skills, for use both in the classroom and beyond! For key information about each competition, please check the competition handbooks:
- Performing Shakespeare (schools in England and Wales)
- ESU-Churchill Public Speaking (schools in England and Wales)
- Schools' Mace (schools in England only)
The fees for all competitions are £45 per entry, or £25 per entry for state schools with more than 20% of students on Free School Meals and/or with English as an Additional Language.
For the Schools' Mace debating competition, you can only enter one team per school. For the ESU-Churchill Public Speaking competition, you may enter up to two teams (paying separately for each team). For the Performing Shakespeare competition, you may enter multiple performances (but will only pay once).
