Bringing Parliament to Poynton High School Sixth Form

David Rutley MP brought a taste of Parliament to sixth formers at Poynton High School to complement their studies on the British political system.

The Year 12 and 13 students are studying politics as part of their General Studies course.  The Macclesfield MP spent time discussing his role as an MP, explaining his work in the constituency and his role in Parliament.  David then answered a range of questions from students on everything from education and welfare to the economy.

Following the visit, Matthew Dean, Director of Sixth Form at Poynton High, said:  “David Rutley’s visit to the school was a valuable opportunity for students to put questions to him about a range of political issues.  His willingness to engage in frank discussion was certainly appreciated and students gained a real insight into the role of a Member of Parliament.  We are again grateful for his contribution to the school.”

David said, “It was a privilege to be able to assist the students with their studies.  I was impressed by the breadth and depth of their questions.  I wish the students every success with their studies.”
