On a cold and sunny December morning, the Year 13 Politics A Level group attended an excellent revision course on UK Politics and Ideologies. The event was held in the Conway Hall, Holborn, home of the Ethical Society. Chief examiners were present, guiding students through eight very detailed seminars on core topics, and the challenge to make notes all day was gamely met by the Year 13 students. Many in the A Level group now have offers to take up a Politics related degree at university and so it was very pleasing to see how well they were able to absorb these challenging topics on such a tight schedule. The group will be visiting Parliament at the end of January, where Slough's MP will address the group in a Q&A session after a tour of both Houses – a treat we are all looking forward to.
It certainly is a fascinating time to be a student of Politics!
