Y13 Election Debate

29th Nov 2019 – With just under two weeks to go before the General Election “The Alban Learning Partners” yesterday hosted a “Question Time” style debate between the Parliamentary Candidates for St Albans.  All of our Y13 students attended this.

Marlborough Science Academy hall was buzzing with questions from students across the Sixth Form consortium. The Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats were ably represented by their Candidates Anne Main and Daisy Cooper. The Green Party and Labour sent proxies, Jack Easton and Ian Grant to represent candidates Simon Grover and Rebecca Lury respectively.

The event was a huge success allowing students to hear from candidates on topics as diverse as Mental Health in Schools, Brexit and the toxic nature of modern Politics. Some of the candidates stayed afterwards to discuss their views with students.
