On Friday 24th April, the candidates from the Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat, Green and UKIP parties, will be in school speaking to Years 11, 10, 9 and 8 about what their Party stands for.
After they have spoken, all pupils will be able to cast their vote.
This is part of our Citizenship programme and specifically the responsibility schools have to ensure that all pupils gain a sound knowledge and understanding of how the United Kingdom is governed, its political system and how citizens participate actively in its democratic systems of government.
