Parkwood Launches its First-Ever Election

Lowering the legal voting age in the UK has been a hot topic of debate in recent times, and students have had their first taste of what it would be like to vote at a younger age with the launch of the first-ever Parkwood Election!

Y7 – Y10 students took part in a simulated election during tutor time this morning, having spent several weeks learning all about each party’s respective manifesto in the run-up to the event.

This morning, each Parkwooder received a personalised voting card to post in designated ballot boxes around the academy and the results showed that a resounding 81% of students would have voted for the Labour Party in a real election!
