Election Hustings get under way

Pupils from Year 10 have been working behind the scenes to run as party leaders for a Mock Election which will be held in school on Thursday 8 June. Those involved were:

  • Alfie Stuckey (10Ridgeway) running as Labour
  • Dylan Collier (10Story) running as Conservatives
  • Ellie Roberts (10Wilson) running as SNP
  • Abbi Turner (10Andrewes) running as People before Profit Alliance
  • Sam Williams (10Wilson) running as UKIP
  • William Murphy (10Burrows) running as Lib Dems
  • Jess Holmes (10Wilson) running as the Green Party
  • Finn Grimmett (10Andrewes) running as the Liberal Party
  • Joe Cornick (10Burrows) running as the Communist party

All candidates had to complete a nomination paper, which was signed by a proposer and a seconder, along with eight other supporters. They were also challenged to get the signatures of support from 30 other pupils – five having to be from each Year group from 7 through to 10. Along with their nomination paper and signature they had to create a manifesto with five key points.

The candidates then had a question and answer panel with four Year 13 students led by Finn Waldron (13Otter). The Year 13 students from this panel took the candidates from nine down to five. All the candidates were passionate about their party and did an excellent job.

The five candidates who got through to the vote were Dylan Collier (Conservatives); Ellie Roberts (SNP); William Murphy (Liberal Democrats), Jess Holmes (Green Party) and Joe Cornick (Communist Party).

This week they have all delivered their speeches in the election assemblies. There will be an open Q&A session in the library on Wednesday 7 June, and then the voting will take place on Thursday 8 June with all pupils and students being issued with a polling card in order for them to cast their vote. We will bring you the results on the day of the election once all votes have been counted and verified.
