BK6 Talks

This is a collaborative on-line journal curated by our Head Teacher, Mr Scott-Evans. Each week, several Sixth Formers present 'Ted Talk' style speeches to their peers in the John Wraw Chapel. On this page you can find transcripts of the BK6 Talks and occasionally filmed versions of the talks. 

Becket Keys Church of England School believes in the importance of teaching students the skills of public speaking and also encouraging students to have a voice on issues that are important to them. This page is a celebration of that!
