A Trip to Westminster - Hurstpierpoint College

A Trip to Westminster

Last week, LVI Politics students took a trip to the Houses of Parliament and were given a tour around the two chambers: the Commons and Lords. After an incredibly exciting and enchanting tour experience around the building, the students received a workshop about pressure groups, lobbyists, and think tanks. The students were described as the “most on it school he’s ever had” by the workshop tutor.

After the workshop, the students enjoyed a Q&A with the MPs staffers, before having a further Q&A with Baroness Gisela Stuart. She most definitely gave many of the students a run for their money with their arguments!
