Latymerians at Westminster

Sixth formers enjoyed a fascinating insight into the workings of daily politics when they visited Parliament earlier this week. The day also offered our pupils a chance to catch up with a couple of Latymerians; MP Andy Slaughter and Simon Josiffe, Education Officer at the Supreme Court.

Andy, Labour MP for Hammersmith, gave the group a tour of the Commons Chamber, after which they watched a question and answer session and visited the Departmental Select Committees (most of which were examining Brexit from different angles). In the afternoon Simon took pupils on a tour of the UK Supreme Court.
