Politics Parliament Trip

A group of Lower Sixth students had the opportunity to see Politics in action on a visit to Parliament in January.

After a comprehensive tour of Westminster Palace the students enjoyed an enlightening discussion in a committee room with former Grange student Edward Winstanley, who now runs the office of Rt Hon Simon Burns, MP for Chelmsford.

This was followed by an hour watching Question Time in the Commons as Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond answered questions on a wide variety of current foreign policy issues.

There was also time for lighter pursuits on the two day trip to the capital as the students hit the West End to take in a production of the musical Mamma Mia, and were allowed a few hours sightseeing before heading home.
