Year 11 visit Parliament!

On Tuesday Year 11 went on a visit to the Houses of Parliament to learn more about the creation and processing of legislation.

They were met at the day by our local MP Alberto Costa who gave some very personal insights into the life of an MP, the weight of responsibility when having to vote on difficult issues and the uniquely British balance of power within our unwritten constitution.

We were able to spend a small time observing a live debate in the commons chamber and they were also allowed to walk into the Lords chamber as they were not sitting at the time.

All of them agreed that the day had been interesting and that they had learned a lot more about how the UK Government functions. Parking the school minibus near Parliament was interesting!
