Mock Election 2019 – the results are in!
It has been an exciting week here in the lead up to the General Election. On Monday, year 13 students took to the stage in a whole school assembly to represent the major UK political parties in election hustings. Wearing their rosettes with pride, candidates took questions from Senior School pupils from all years, ranging from climate change, the NHS to Brexit and responded articulately and confidently to all the issues raised.
On Thursday 12 December, the morning of the General Election itself, we held a mock election where all the students could vote. It was a nail-biting experience as pupils and candidates were able to watch the results coming in live, just as in a real election!
With an incredibly close-run result, the party that won, by only a handful of votes, was the Lib Dems, with Labour a close second and the Greens hot on their heels.
