UTC Students visit the House of Commons

UTC Sheffield student ambassadors visited Westminster recently and enjoyed a tour of the House of Commons and House of Lords. The group then watched  the tradition of ‘Speaker’s Procession’, which precedes the start of business each day, and were able to go into the public gallery to observe live proceedings in action.

Student ambassador Waranya Giles said, “The best thing was the tour  – it was brilliant to hear about the history of Parliament and all the funny rituals! I learnt a lot.”

Tahlia Lenton agreed: “I enjoyed everything but especially meeting Paul Blomfield MP and asking a question in the Committee Room, seeing the House doing its work and watching MPs bob up and down in the Chamber trying to catch the Speaker’s eye. It was an excellent trip – very informative!”

Assistant Principal Brigidin Crowther added: “It was fantastic to learn more about how democracy happens right in Parliament itself. We see this kind of visit as important in understanding how politics really works. The proceedings were extemely interesting and we were proud to see how confidently our students asked questions directly to MP Paul Blomfield. We all fully enjoyed our day in the heart of the capital – a super summer trip!”
