Our year 12 pupils Rosanna Elliott and Serena Hunt proved their negotiating skills at the EU Mock Council held at the Law Society in December. Over 32 schools took place in the mock summit from across the UK and our pupils excelled in the vital position of EC representatives negotiating a deal with the British delegation on the Erasmus+ programme. There were numerous sticking points amongst the various delegations including whether Britain retained the right to vote in future decisions on the programme (it was decided we would retain the right given the quality of educational establishments that we have in the UK). I am delighted to relate that our pupils gained 100% consensus on their proposals - let us hope that the real Brexit negotiations on this programme are as fair and balanced.
Rosanna Elliott and Rhiannon Hughes also took part in the ESU Mace debate first regional round contesting 'This House would introduce a year of compulsory, non-military national service after Year 13' against Dulwich College. This was an exceptionally strong debate with both sides offering excellent argument and rebuttal. Six schools took part in the first round with Dulwich and Bromley going through to the second round. A huge well-done to our pupils for their excellent performance.
