Sixth Formers visit 10 Downing Street

Ruislip High Sixth Formers stood outside 10 Downing Street on a Year 12 Politics study trip on Tuesday 15th October.

This was part of a trip to the Houses of Parliament led by Mr Amos and Ms Purkis. Whilst there, the 12 students were taken on a tour and given time to watch debates in the House of Commons regarding the subjects of racism in football and political prisoners in Catalonia. 

After the Parliament tour, students had a question and answer session with Lord Randall, the former Uxbridge and South Ruislip MP, along with a workshop on law-making. 

Students were also lucky enough to visit Downing Street and to take a picture outside the most famous front door in the world!

Politics teacher Mr Amos said, “Visiting Parliament is a vital part of studying politics, and it was my pleasure to take such a fantastic group of students. Hopefully the experience of visiting Parliament and 10 Downing Street live long in their memories, I expect to be invited back when one of them becomes Prime Minister!"
