Mock General Election
On the evening before the recent General Election, a group of pupils with political aspirations took part in the College's mock election hustings. The following report was prepared by classics Teacher, Theo Cowper.
The five Year 12 pupils who stood as parliamentary candidates for each of the main political parties exceeded all expectations and performed tremendously well under significant pressure and considerable scrutiny from their peers.
From here on, the candidates fielded questions on Brexit, national security, the economy and national services, all orchestrated by the College’s Head of Politics and Government and the chair for the evening, Richard Bunce.The pupils in the audience were positively engaged throughout and had some excellent question. Mr Bunce did an exceptional job, allowing the party representatives to speak whilst keeping them to time and taking questions from the floor.
