LORD SPEAKER’S PEERS IN SCHOOLS OUTREACH PROGRAMME
Perry Beeches The Academy hosted a talk from a member of the House of Lords on Friday 9th October to encourage students to become more engaged with the political and parliamentary process. We were delighted to welcome Lord Rooker, who met with a selection of our Year 8 and Year 9 students for an hour to talk about the work and role of the House of Lords. This was followed by a question and answer session on various aspects of the parliamentary process and life at Westminster. Our students found the session both informative and inspirational and participation was significant in further igniting their interest in politics. Who knows…there may be a future MP amongst us!
