Students quiz MP Mark Prisk on visit to St Mary's Catholic School in Stortford
Government and politics students at St Mary’s Catholic School in Bishop’s Stortford got a chance to quiz the town’s MP.
Conservative Mark Prisk answered questions about his role in parliament, university tuition fees, ISIS supporters returning to the UK, the first past the post electoral system, Brexit and many other contentious issues during a visit to the Windhill secondary.
Mr Prisk also enjoyed a tour, with head Andrew Celano, head of the sixth form Victoria Workman and the school's head students, to see the progress of a £5m refurbishment programme currently underway and review art, science and maths projects by pupils
Mr Prisk congratulated St. Mary’s on GCSE and A-level results which place the school in the top 8% nationally.
Mr Celano commented: “Mr Prisk was very complimentary about our school – our students and staff – and it was a pleasure to host him again. In particular, I was most impressed to see our government and politics students rising to the challenge of posing some very searching questions on topical issues, not just Brexit!”
