What did you like about the day?

'This was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to hear from some of the nation’s
leading lights and I hope that it will become a staple of our calendar for many years to com
Bethany School

“It was a highly engaging and informative day. The students enjoyed the trip immensely and had the opportunity to meet some prominent political figures, which they were all extremely pleased about.”

"The students took the opportunity to listen to, and question (and)... thoroughly
enjoyed themselves listening to the ideas and policies of these luminaries."
Paston Sixth Form College

"The day was truly inspiring as it gave us the opportunity to learn about the roles of different ministers in Parliament. As well as this, it allowed us to decide on our own political views and helped us all to understand more about the political system that we had learnt so much about in class."

Wycombe Abbey School

"It was a very stimulating day and it really brought Politics to life. It was good for the A Level students from Sydenham to see that they are part of a wider learning community. There cannot be a better time to be studying A Level Politics in such interesting, if not turbulent times!"

Sydenham High School

"The Lower 6th Politics students attended a conference at Central Hall, Westminster shortly before the end of last term. Everyone was impressed by the eloquence of the speakers and found the experience to be very interesting."

St Benedict's

"Several of our students attempted to ask questions of the Conference speakers and (two) were able to put questions to the speakers. Both were complimented for the quality of their questions.

Clyst Vale Community College

“Our Politics students have attended this conference every year and are invariably surprised and challenged by the speakers. It’s a unique opportunity to speak directly to national leaders.”

Queen Elizabeth's School

"The trip gave us a new insight into politics and the way that politicians work. We were exposed to different views, more often than not from within the same party. This was most interesting of all, as we got to understand the extent to which opinions can fluctuate"

Wycombe Abbey School

"Twenty Year 12 Politics students travelled to London to take part in an A-level Politics Conference where they would hear from esteemed members of the British political scene and have the opportunity to ask questions." 
Conyers School

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the organisation that went into Monday - it was a great event and our students really enjoyed it!
DC, Cadbury College

Just a quick note to thank you for the Politics Conference on Monday and congratulations on such a successful day. To hear a 90 year old Lord Dubs views contrasting with the comparative youngsters from the SNP and the Greens was interesting.

CN (a teacher who has been coming for over 20 years!)

'Thank you for yesterday,  It was our first time attending the conference and felt it was very well organised. It was fantastic to hear from so many high profile politicians and the students had a great time!'

CK, Richard Huish was a fab day and thank you for organising - they're still talking about it and particularly enjoyed Jess Philips, Jeremy Corbyn, and Sir Rees-Mogg.
