A group of children from Maidensbridge visited The Houses of Parliament and Number 10 Downing Street as part of their citizenship and British values work in school.
The children, who were members of the School Council, Anti-bullying Ambassadors and House Captains, made a 7am start to their journey and travelled down the M40 motorway to Westminster.
The children received a interactive presentation by the staff of the Parliament Information Service, before having a tour of the Palace of Westminster. As both Houses of Parliament have a recess, the children were able to visit the chambers of the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
After stopping for a short lunch break, the children set off to Downing Street having organised for the children to visit the historic home of the Prime Minister. Here the children enjoyed the sights and sounds of this famous street before being taking pictures.
The trip was enjoyed by all participants and the children have new memories and experiences they can look back upon. The children were a credit to the school as typically, they behaved impeccably and were well-mannered.
This is the third visit we have made in as many years and was by far the best.
