Peers In Schools Visit From The Earl Of Kinnoull


(17-03-17) We were delighted to host a talk from a member of the House of Lords to encourage our pupils to become more engaged with the political and parliamentary process.  The Earl of Kinnoull met with over 70 pupils in Forms 6 - 8 to talk about the work and role of the House of Lords. This was followed by a question and answer session on various aspects of the parliamentary process and life at Westminster generally.

The visit was arranged through the Lord Speaker’s “Peers in Schools” programme, which has been running across the UK since 2007 and has so far involved around 75,000 young people.  This continuing outreach programme sends members of the House of Lords into schools/academies and colleges across the country to give talks in support of the citizenship curriculum.  For further information, see the Lord Speaker’s web page at www.parliament.uk/lordspeaker .
