Visit to Parliament

Lower Sixth politics students were guided round Parliament which included central lobby, the House of Lords and the House of Commons on the visit to Parliament.

It was amazing to see a place with such historic and current importance. It was also exciting to see familiar political faces such as John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons, and Priti Patel, Secretary of State for International Development.

We were lucky enough later on in the day to sit in the gallery of the Houses of Commons to watch the MP's at work and see them debate an issue.

It was extremely interesting learning about how Parliament works and how it functions on a daily basis. The trip also gave us more insight into how the country is run and developed our knowledge of Parliament and British Politics.
