2nd February 2018. The Year 12 Politics class was joined by a number of interested Year 11s in welcoming Professor Peter Hennessy (Baron Hennessy of Nympsfield) to talk to them about the role of the Prime Minister.
Peter Hennessy is a leading constitutional expert and has enjoyed a wide and varied life. As well being an academic and now a serving member of the House of Lords, he was also a journalist on The Times for many years and still works as a broadcaster and writer.
As well as giving an interesting talk on the post of Prime Minister, Professor Hennessy was happy to take questions from the girls and he both amused and fascinated them with a series of anecdotes linked to all things political – including John Major’s socks! It was a thoroughly entertaining (and educational) hour and we are delighted that he has agreed to pay us a return visit next year.
