Seven of our year 11 students participated in the eleventh annual Democracy Forum at The Council Chamber at Birmingham Council House. Students engaged with a range of schools from across Birmingham and asked very topical questions of the following panel:

Sajid Javid MP – Conservative

Caroline Spelman MP – Conservative

Phil Bennion MEP – Lib Dems

Gisela Stuart MP – Labour

David Franklin – President Students Guild, University of Birmingham

It was a real opportunity for students to meet prominent politicians in questions and debate – a unique and exciting context for young people to gain first experience of politics at the highest level.
