Insight into the House of Lords for our students

PARLIAMENTARY processes are best explained by those in the know and a visit from a House of Lords Peer brought Westminster to city youngsters last week.

MK South Sixth Form hosted the talk from Viscount Younger at their Lord Grey Centre to encourage students to engage more with political and parliamentary processes.

The talk was then followed by a question and answer session for Year 12 Government and Politics students.

Angela Mogridge, assistant head of Sixth Form, said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to interact with someone who knows the parliamentary system inside out, as it can sometimes seem far removed from their daily lives.”
