On the 1st of February the Government and Politics department welcomed the MP for Gainsborough, Edward Leigh, to answer questions from the A Level students that study Government and Politics. The opportunity was shared by both year 12 and year 13 students and offered a highly valuable perspective into the world of politics and parliament. The students took the opportunity to ask questions about various issues relating to their studies and Mr Leigh's answers proved to be enormously helpful and detailed. We were also given a valuable insight into the inner workings and attitudes of the Conservative party, coming from an actual MP and not just political rumour. Many thanks to Edward Leigh for taking the time to visit the school.
