Baroness Young visit from House of Lords

large baroness young ready for webWalton High recently hosted a talk from a member of the House of Lords which encouraged students to become more engaged with the political and parliamentary process. Baroness Young of Old Scone met with sixth form Law and Politics students for an hour to talk about the work and role of the House of Lords. This was followed by a question and answer session on various aspects of the parliamentary process and life at Westminster generally. 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.

The visit was arranged through the Lord Speaker’s “Peers in Schools” programme. The Law and Politics students found it immensely informative and stimulating, the Baroness being both lively and extremely engaging on an eclectic range of issues.  Various topics were discussed, such as the ecological considerations linked to the construction of the Severn Barrage to a debate on the success of the reform of the House of Lords.

The Big Read 2016 – Author visit

bigread161 bigread162

To kick start The Big Read 2016 we were fortunate enough to be visited by author, Anna Fitzpatrick. On Monday 18 April, groups of students from Years 7 to 11 participated in workshops in which Anna shared her manga drawing skills, experiences and ideas. She also taught students to draw manga cartoon characters before sharing some of her writing with the students.
It was a very enjoyable day for all. Students already exposed to anime and manga were particularly engaged with the workshop as they exchanged their thoughts and opinions on the comic books they enjoy.
