Our Year 10 students heard from local political representatives today, during one of their off-timetable days to cover issues beyond the traditional curriculum.
We welcomed into school our Labour MP, Olivia Blake, the Green Party's Baroness Natalie Bennett & Young Conservative Ethan Hickey.
They faced a real grilling from our students, on everything from Brexit to climate change and votes at 16. Our students weren't shy in expressing their opinions either! They also had a Student Panel of particularly engaged students, who joined in the debate and probed further with additional questions and comments.
Thank you to everyone involved!
