Shadowing an MP – Year 10 student

CSE Play

On Monday 26th June year 9 were off timetable to watch a drama production of a play about CSE. Child Sexual Exploitation is an important topic and one that we are exploring in Citizenship & PSHE at the moment via the Real Love Rocks module from Barnardos. The play was very powerful and students had a chance to hot seat the characters at the end.

All the actors were students themselves and the story was based on real life events.

It’s what’s inside that counts..

Welcome to our new series of quotes that will be up in the newly refurbished well being room come September.

AGGS Mock Election Hustings

The year 10 GCSE group and the AGGS Politics society have joined forces and hosted a Hustings for our Mock General Election here at AGGS today.

The hustings took place yesterday and saw members from the five main political parties delivering speeches and being questioned by students. This was a great way to engage young people in political issues and to demonstrate that young people do have a voice.

Well done to all those involved and good luck to all the candidates today. We will be comparing and contrasting stats from our own election to those of the UK General Election tomorrow at Politics society.
