Houses of Parliament Trip

 

Houses of Parliament tripThe first day back after the Christmas Holiday’s saw the Year 11 and year 10 GCSE Citizenship classes go down to London for the annual Houses of Parliament and Supreme Court trip. The day was full on and busy, however incredibly informative and lots of what we learnt linked to the GCSE course. The tours and workshops linked to our learning in Theme B and Theme C. A highlight was watching both the House of Commons and the House of Lords in session. The debates were relevant and some heated exchanges were made, we really saw democracy in action.

After a long day we walked from Westminster to Euston taking in more of the wonderful London sights including Downing Street and Trafalgar Square.
