The Rt Hon John Bercow MP

We were delighted to welcome the Rt Hon John Bercow MP (Mr Speaker) to Harton Academy on Friday 30th November. Mr Speaker spent the entire morning chatting to a range of students in our Lecture Theatre. First of all he outlined his role as Mr Speaker and answered some excellent questions from our Year 7 and Year 8 students, along with approximately forty students from Harton Primary School.

After a short break, Mr Speaker then conducted a Brexit debate with Harton students from Years 10, 11, 12 & 13, together with invited 6th Form guests from Whitburn Church of England Academy, St Wilfrid’s Roman Catholic College and St Joseph’s Catholic Academy.

It was a fantastic opportunity for the students and staff who were fortunate to attend and there are a number of accompanying photographs below:
