Political Engagement

In the Thomas Hardye Sixth Form, we believe it is vital that students have the opportunity to become more aware of the political world. This is central to them becoming a well-informed adult, who has the ability to think about and question the world around them. Being a part of the Student Union is one way of doing this and our students will also have the opportunity to take part in Model United Nations, which takes part in conferences every year in Oxford.  We like to mirror what is happening in Westminster, so we often run mock general or European elections, where students campaign on behalf of a political party and there is a whole school vote. We have also hosted debates on the EU and between local election candidates.
