Last Friday representatives from each form group in years 7-9 attended an hour long question and answer session with our local MP, Katherine Fletcher. Students came well prepared with questions on a variety of topics including the cost of living crisis, the war in Ukraine and the winter strikes. Before the Christmas break, as part of their study of Fundamental British Values, students had learnt about the issue of migration across the English Channel, and had prepared a number of questions for Mrs Fletcher on the topical issue. Mrs Fletcher gave full answers to all questions and students were provided with a superb insight into current affairs from an MP’s perspective, as well as a glimpse into the Parliamentary world. It was very much appreciated by the students that Mrs Fletcher had given up her time to visit school and give such honest and interesting answers to their questions.
