Sidmouth sixthformers visit Parliament
MP Hugo Swire in workshop at House of Commons with Sidmouth College sixthformers
SHORTLY after East Devon MP, Hugo Swire, visited students at Sidmouth College, a group of sixth formers met him at the Houses of Parliament during their annual history trip.
After being cleared by security, students first observed debates in the Houses of Lords and Commons and were excited to observe Lord Alan “You’re Fired” Sugar in action.
They then took part in an educational workshop, with the chance to grill Mr Swire.
The highlight of the day was a rare tour of Downing Street where students posed for a photograph at the famous black door of Number 10 and to make friends with PC Clark outside.
