A group of politics students from St Helen’s and Abingdon School journeyed to Westminster to visit the Houses of Parliament. The day started with a quick trip through security followed by a minute’s silence to commemorate the victims of the London Bridge terror attack. We then proceeded to enter Parliament and were shown the House of Commons and given an informative history of the room itself. Next we were taken to the House of Lords and shown the ornate throne, then we travelled back to the education centre and did an interesting activity about pressure groups’ roles throughout Britain’s recent history. We were delighted to have a special visitor talk to us about the processes within the House of Parliament: Lord Addington. Shortly after, we proceeded to the Supreme Court. Our very nice tour guide allowed us to sit in the judges’ chairs and discuss some cases and their constitutional and international implications. All in all, the day was wonderful and extremely thought-provoking.
