David Rutley MP gave Tytherington School’s students an opportunity for a Question and Answer session on Friday 14th December. The visit was the final event of Tytherington’s Parliament Week which is an initiative designed to raise political awareness amongst young people. Tytherington School have held a number of events over the past fortnight including visits from MPs, a workshop for primary school student councils and a local council Question Time.
David Rutley answered a number of questions ranging from the plan for Brexit, voting age and the party system. The Macclesfield MP also gave an honest and frank insight into the complexities of government.
Headteacher, Manny Botwe, said: “We are delighted that David Rutley came to visit the school as part of our Parliament week. He is a keen supporter of the school and we are grateful for his regular sessions with our Student Parliament.”
Speaking after his visit, David said, “It was great to see Tytherington High School participating in UK Parliament week. As their well-put and impressive questions demonstrated, the students from Tytherington High School were clearly engaged with many important issues and current affairs more generally. I look forward to visiting the school again in the future.”
