On Friday 11th March, three of our Year 11 pupils had the exciting opportunity to attend the Speaker of the House of Commons Session in Leeds.

Pupils learnt about the role of the Speaker of the House of Commons and were able to ask questions and take part in a debate chaired by the Speaker, Rt Hon Sir Lindsay Hoyle.

It was a great opportunity for our pupils to increase their understanding of democracy and decision-making processes, as well as strengthen their debating skills.

They debated whether ‘all exams should be scraped’, so as well as giving their views on this topic, they also heard the opinions of others across Leeds.

We are really proud of the pupils who attended, as they spoke with confidence and maturity and were fantastic representatives of CMCS.
