As part of our “Aspirational Occupations” programme of events, we welcomed Labour MP, David Drew into school on Friday.

Students listened to a presentation where they learned about key qualities needed for a career in politics and top tips on how to be an agent for change in the world.

The floor was opened for questions and our students had the opportunity to ask about some hard hitting questions about issues affecting Young People and our Country.

Following a personalised meet and greet for a small group of students who are committed to a career in politics, Mr Drew then joined Our Year 11 Geographers for a debate lesson around governmental responses to tackling the effects of Climate change to including reducing the use of plastics in schools.

It was wonderful to see our students use their voices. We are really proud!
