Year 9 Debate Team Visit the Palace of Westminster

On Thursday the 12th September, our Year 9 Debate Team had the fantastic opportunity to visit the Palace of Westminster. The trip began with a tour of Parliament: the Houses of Commons, Lords and Westminster Hall. Pupils then participated in a ‘Debating’ workshop where they gained first-hand experience of the art of arguing and delivering their ideas with confidence. This was highly enjoyable excursion to one of the most important institutions in our country. For some, it was their first trip to our country’s capital and even their first time on a train! A member of the public even complimented the students for their conduct and behaviour!

A very successful day, thoroughly enjoyed by all. Well done Year 9!
