On Thursday 7th May 2015, students took part in a mock election. The results reflect the schools wide diversity of views which have hopefully been debated among students as well as staff over the last few days. Apart from four Year 7 forms away on foreign visits, every single form participated in the voting procedure, giving Anglo European a 100% turnout rate which is an achievement itself. The results were as follows :
Labour – 330 votes = 32%
Conservative – 288 votes = 28%
Green Party – 205 votes = 20%
UKIP – 117 votes = 12%
Liberal Democrats – 73 votes = 7%
Spoilt Ballot Papers – 8 votes = 1%
