Local MP, Jack Dromey joined in our Citizenship lesson
Our Local MP Jack Dromey visited the school’s post 16 site to work with the students who are sitting the June 2016 Citizenship exam. As part of their Unit 2 Controlled Assessment (Advocacy and Representation) the students chose a citizenship issue close to their hearts and conducted extensive research to determine public opinions on the matter. They prepared a case for mounting a campaign on their issue and advocated it to a person in a position of power, with Mr Dromey commenting on their advocacy and addressing their conclusions and proposals.
