A Level students studying Politics, History, Sociology and Psychology, took an educational visit to London to see the Houses of Parliament and the Imperial War Museum. Students got a tour of the Houses of Parliament at the invitation of our local MP Richard Burden, as part of Democratic Access to Parliament.
This experience built on our students’ studies and enabled them to better understand the things they learn about in class. As well as improving learning, the trip promotes the college commitment to Democracy, Rule of Law and other key principles of British values.
The students had a very interesting tour, lasting an hour and thirty minutes, which included seeing the House of Lords and Queens entrance, but not the Commons as Prime Minister’s Questions was about to start. However, one group managed to see the Speaker in his robes and the procession!
The group then visited The Imperial War Museum, which showcases modern conflict and paints a picture of what life was like in periods of war. Many students viewed an eye-opening exhibition on the Holocaust.
An enjoyable and informative day was had by all students and staff.
