Case study: Linklaters
For nine years the Noisy Classroom worked with Linklaters to build and support Debating in schools in Hackney. This involved working with 40+ primary schools, six secondary schools and one Special school. We ran pupil workshops, staff training, competitions and developed online, paper and video resources. Primary schools visited Cambridge for the chance to debate in the Union chamber and secondary teams visited the world schools debate academy in Slovenia. Teams from Hackney won both the primary and secondary London debating Championships. We placed a member of staff in Clapton Girls Academy two days a week to embed debate in the culture of the school. This extraordinary partnership shows that we can run a programme as large and exciting as your ambition and budget will allow but we can also offer smaller projects to suit your needs.
