Students from Southend High School for Boys visited the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday 1st November. As part of their visit they met local MP Sir David Amess for a Q&A session where they learnt about life in Parliament and the role of an MP.
The Year 10 students were eager to question the MP for Southend West on a number of topics ranging from his parliamentary career and his main interests to Brexit negotiations and the plans the Government has for the UK in the near future.
Southend High School for Boys’ visit to Westminster was part of a workshop scheme run by the Houses of Parliament Education Service. The scheme encourages schools across the country to visit Parliament and their local MPs in order to help students develop a better understanding of the UK’s political environment.
