Mock Election

Share article:

Nearly 600 pupils voted in the school’s Mock Election, a turnout of nearly 80%, in the absence of many Upper Sixth and Year 11s, who are on study leave. Voting on the basis of the in-school campaigns run by sixth-formers, the school gave the victory to the Conservatives, with 62% of the vote. The full results were:

Conservatives: 352

Labour: 70


Lib Dems: 44

Greens: 43

The Mock Election followed the school’s Question Time hustings for all the local candidates and a talk by George Parker, the Political Editor of the Financial Times, both organised by a committee of sixth-formers to raise pupil engagement with politics.
