This has been an exciting week. Some of our Sixth Form students have been able to vote for the first time.
We have held our own school election. We have also elected our new Sixth Form Senior Team.
It is a huge privilege to be able to vote; suffragettes gave their lives in order that women could vote in the 20th Century and Chartists did the same for the rights of ordinary men (not just the very rich) in the nineteenth century.
In this day and age there are still numerous countries where people do not have the right to vote. Let’s ensure that we are proud of our British values and we use our right to vote wisely. We pray that all leaders will rule justly and fairly.
