Modern Studies London trip

Annual visit to Houses of Parliament

The annual Modern Studies trip to the Houses of Parliament went ahead on 17 and 18 September. Following a similar structure to previous years, 21 senior pupils took the chance on the Monday evening to shop on Oxford Street before visiting the theatre (Billy Elliot). Up bright an early on the Tuesday, it was straight to the Parliament for the tour, before meeting and speaking with local MP Jim McGovern. After Parliament, the group took a 'flight' on the London Eye before heading to Downing Street and Trafalgar Square. All too quickly, it was back to the train station and

the return journey home - an intense two days.

The Modern Studies Department would again like to thank Jim McGovern for sponsoring our visit to the Parliament and for meeting and talking with the pupils. I would also like to compliment the pupils on their good behaviour - they were a credit to the school. Well done.
