Wisdom School hosted a talk from a member of the House of Lords on Friday 23rd November 2012 to encourage students to engage more with the political and parliamentary process. It was one of over 40 visits to schools that took place around the UK to mark the final day of Parliament Week, a national initiative to build greater awareness of, and engagement with, parliamentary democracy in the UK.

Lord Mitchell met with Key Stage 3 students for an hour to talk about the work and role of the House of Lords. This was followed by a question and answer session on various aspects of the parliamentary process and life at Westminster generally.

Mr Guveli Headteacher of Wisdom School said, 'This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to interact with someone who knows the parliamentary system inside out, as it can sometimes seem far removed from their daily lives.'
