During October half term Mrs Padden and Miss Keaney took a group of 10 Post 16 students to Washington DC. These students are all studying Government & Politics and History at A level. They had a tour of Capitol Hill, visited the Office of Senate Majority Leader Harry Ried (NV DEM), were given a superb tour of the Senate building, visited the US Supreme Court and had a tour (arranged by Senator Reid’s Office) of the Pentagon. They also visited the Smithsonian Museum and the Lincoln, Washington and Jefferson Memorials.
It was a superb visit. The lucky students were Tuesday Alabaidi, Hannah Grinsted, Lara Newman, Amy Parnall, Sarah Wakley, Hannah Perry, Myles Buckingham, Toby Hannam, Ryan Loosemore and James Murphy.
