A group of our Year 12 and 13 Politics students took part in a trip to Parliament. The event proceeded with a tour around the Palace of Westminster, including a visit to the House of Commons chamber and the House of Lords. The students also got to see the Queens Gallery where the monarch gets ready before the state opening of Parliament and the committee rooms where detailed scrutiny of the government takes place. Following the tour, our students took part in a role-play activity where they took the part of MPs on a Select Committee. Overall, it was a very entertaining and educational day at the heart of government in London.
