Digital Surgeries

Last week the Year 10 GCSE Citizenship group took part in an exciting new project with the Politics Project called Digital Surgeries. The group have worked through a series of lessons to find out more about the role of decision makers with the goal of speaking to them via Skype and putting their questions and ideas to these decision makers. This is a key part of involving young people in the process of politics and making their voices heard as active citizens.

Year 10 spoke to MEP Julie Ward. This was a fantastic opportunity to ask questions about Brexit and the future of the UK outside of Europe. The students also explored women’s rights and the rights of other citizens and how young people can get involved in politics.

This was a unique way for our students to share their views and opinions with a decision maker. Thank you to the Politics project for this fantastic opportunity. The Politics Society will be speaking to Beth Knowles on Friday exploring her role as Andy Burham’s Assistant and leading his Manchester Homelessness project. All students are welcome to join us.
