Sixth form students attended the A Level politics conference in Westminster Methodist Hall, London. They heard from Chris Bryant, Ed Davies, Emily Thornberry, Jess Philips, Jeremy Corbyn, Jacob Rees-Mogg and others. The students listened to some challenging and stimulating debates on poverty and asylum. The event was followed by a quick bite to eat in the Hard Rock Cafe and then the delights of Hamilton. A busy and successful day!
Day two included a Tour of the Houses of Parliament. Meet and greet with local MP, Guy Opperman. Christmas tree from Kielder in Westminster Hall. Photo opp with Millicent Fawcett. Bringing history to life. Engaging in democracy. Wonderful trip. Fantastic students.
