Houses of Parliament Trip – Summer Term 2016

On Thursday 14 April, 10 excited students from Years 7, 8, 9 and 10, met at Chesterfield train station to start their journey to the Houses of Parliament, London.

It was a beautiful day in London and so we enjoyed a picnic lunch sitting next to the Thames in Victoria Gardens by the Houses of Parliament. On arrival at the Houses of Parliament Education Centre, we were greeted by our tour guide and taken through the airport style security checks to enable us to enter the Centre. Our group was then escorted through into the Houses of Parliament where our very informative guide gave us details on how the House of Commons and the House of Lords operated and told us some of the buildings’ history. We were able to enter the viewing gallery of both Houses and observed MPs and Lords debating.

The students then took part in an interactive ‘Making Laws’ workshop back in the Education Centre, which allowed them to work through the process of introducing a new law and debating the arguments for and against.

On leaving the Education Centre we headed for Downing Street, where we had been granted permission to have our photograph taken right outside Number 10. Again, we went through airport style security checks but then we were in Downing Street itself! The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being outside Number 10 where very few people get to be. We also got to meet Larry the Number 10 cat as he escaped through the famous door onto Downing Street and poised for photographs! It was a great opportunity and experience that will long be remembered.

After our experience in Downing Street, we managed to squeeze in a visit to the Science Museum where the students had chance to explore, before getting squashed onto the tube and heading back to St Pancras station. An excellent day had been had by all.
