Year 11 and Year 8 had the opportunity on Friday 14 February to visit the Careers Fair at Brooklands. What an opportunity this was for the students to visit the exhibitors, and chat to them about perspective careers. The RAF, Army, MK Dons, NHS, University of Northampton, Morgan Sindall and many more companies were on hand ready to help our students. Jenny one of our ex-students chatted to lots of students with regards to having a career in the NHS.

On the 13th February Post 16 Law and Politics students enjoyed a trip to the Supreme Court of Justice and a Tour and Workshop in the Houses of Parliament. During the Supreme Court of Justice tour students were able to hear able about the work of the Court and some of the most notable cases in modern times. Students also found out about key women which have been trail blazers in the legal world. In the Houses of Parliament students had a tour an talk of the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

After the guided tour, the students were taken into the Parliament Education Centre to take part in a workshop about how our government creates legislation. During this workshop the students were quizzed on their own knowledge and then encouraged to form a miniature parliament to debate a piece of legislation of their own choosing. They heard a live debate in the Commons and participated in a workshop consolidating their learning of the legislative process. Students enjoyed a Q and A session with Iain Stewart, the MP for Milton Keynes South, discussing relevant local matters.

The trip was incredibly informative for all involved and allowed the students to get a real feel for the way our democracy works and the important work which these institutions undertake.
