Students outside Parliament

Students from Bracknell & Wokingham College recently took an educational trip to the capital to visit The Houses of Parliament and The Supreme Court.

The students had an insightful tour of Parliament covering everything from the design of the building through to the history of democracy and law-making that occurs within the chambers. At The Supreme Court the students sat in on two court cases to gain an experience of how The Supreme Court operates. 

David Constable, Government, Politics and Sociology Lecturer, arranged the outing to give the students the chance to see two of the most politically significant buildings in the UK:

“It was an eye-opening trip for our students, a truly valuable experience and will help the students with their studies in various ways. 

“Our History students cover British Political History, while our Politics students look at the political nature of both The Supreme Court and of Parliament. 

“For the Law students, it was a chance to experience a court case first hand and to see how the laws in the UK are made. And from an ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) perspective, they could enhance their understanding of the UK to supplement their learning.

“The feedback from the students has been that the trip was very worthwhile and the guides we had in The Houses of Parliament and at The Supreme Court were both excellent.”
