Politics and Law Trip - Houses of Parliament

On Monday 18th September, our new Year 12 Politics and Law students visited the Houses of Parliament (joined by our more experienced Year 13 Politics students). The group had a tour around the estate, were able to stand (definitely not sit) in the House of Lords and the House of Commons before finishing in Westminster Hall. The class then had a workshop where they explored the passage of a bill and how Parliament scrutinises legislation before it becomes law. They finished with a debate on tuition fees before a short sightseeing tour of Downing Street and the Supreme Court.
