Graham Brady Visit

As part of the Citizenship GCSE curriculum it is vital for students to scrutinize and question the views of their local MP. Friday’s visit of Graham Brady was arranged before the snap general election was called. Although Graham Brady is officially declared as the conservative candidate he was able to explore and share about his role as an MP within the Altrincham and Sale West constituency. Students learn about the role of an MP within the new syllabus so this was an fantastic opportunity to hear about what it is really like to be an MP.

Students and staff submitted questions to explore and challenge the Conservative ideologies and to find out Graham Brady’s views. He talked of his current role as the chairman of the 1922 committee and considered his past roles on the shadow cabinet in his early career. The role of grammar schools, school funding cuts and austerity were high on the agenda for questions.

AGGS Politics society are currently working towards running our own AGGS Mock General Election and are exploring all the parties pledges, these will be presented to students at a Hustings on June 7th followed by an election on June 8th.
