Harrogate Grammar School’s Student Leadership Team recently visited the Houses of Parliament where local MP Andrew Jones gave the students a detailed tour of the House of Lords and the House of Commons, explaining key political processes. 

Deputy Head Girl, Katie Lee, said: “It was inspirational to see MPs at work but also a real privilege to walk through the House of Lords.”

Head of Sixth Form, Neil Renton, said: “Our Student Leadership Team have made a significant contribution to school and this visit encouraged them to reflect on their own leadership while also learning about the history and functions of the Houses of Parliament.”
