Citizenship EU Debate

On Wednesday, the school welcomed two campaigners for the EU referendum: Barry Cooper (Vote Leave) and Oliver Coppard (Remain).

The candidates debated challenging questions posed by our 6th form and Year 10 pupils (pictured) in a robust but refreshingly honest and non-combative style.

Thank you very much to our two campaigners for giving up their time to persuade pupils too young to vote, but whom nevertheless will have benefited tremendously from feeling included in a real-life political debate. As one pupil aptly put it, (looking at the teachers lining the back of the hall), 'it affects us more because we're going to be around a lot longer than you!'
