Students from the Government and Politics and Law A-Level courses were able to have a behind the scenes look at the building and rooms where some of the most important and significant decisions about our country are made.
The students got to visit the court where the recent Article 50 case took place, went to the Palace of Westminster for a guided tour, including the House of Commons Gallery, and the Strangers Gallery at the House of Lords.
While they were at the Houses of Parliament, they were treated to a live debate about Brexit and witnessed Lib Dem leader, Tim Farron, in full swing.
The students then took part in a round of political ‘speed dating’ with a number of MPs and parliamentary officials. The students had a few minutes to ask each MP about their jobs and any other topical political questions they had time for.
The day was rounded off with an address and Q and A session from Home Secretary, and local MP for Hastings and Rye, Amber Rudd.
