Votes are in at the Senior School

Mock General Election – Akeley Wood School

We were all very impressed by the keenness of our students to participate in our mock General Election across all three sites of Akeley Wood School. Turnout was very high and all three chose the Conservative Party as a clear winner. Students were eager to discuss their views with their teachers, tutors and peers. It was an ideal opportunity to raise their awareness of political issues and will be a foundation for voting age to start at 16 if that comes to fruition in England as it has in Scotland.

 

Hot on the heels of the Conservative victory at the Junior School we have  the following:

One of the many interesting quotes from the day

 

 “When I look at the policies I would choose Labour but I much prefer May over Corbyn – I need to be able to vote Labour policy with Tory leadership.”
