Residential Trip from Monday 29th June 2020 to Friday 3rd July 2020
Each year a group of about forty students from across the Associated Sixth Form enjoy a three day Politics, Economics and History trip London in July. The centre-piece of the trip is always an excellent guided tour of the Palace of Westminster. Following the tour, the local MP for Harrogate meets the students for a question and answer session. We have often been taken to the magnificent St Stephen’s Chapel below Westminster Hall, and sometimes we have been invited onto the Commons terrace. Apart from Parliament the Politics and History students visit the Churchill War Rooms, while the Economics students are taken on a walking tour of Canary Wharf. In between we usually manage to fit in visits to the Imperial War Museum, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Cathedral. In the evenings we go to two West End shows.It is always a memorable trip, enjoyed by everyone. It is highly recommended for anyone studying Politics, Economics or History in Year 12.
