International Politics Students take part in ‘Brexit’ debate

Anglo Upper Sixth International Politics students took part in a Sixth Form Citizenship Day at Chelmsford Cathederal on Wednesday 18th November on the theme of, ‘The UK and the EU: In or Out?’. Anglo students not only took part in the conference in which speakers put the case for both sides of the debate, but were also asked to facilitate discussion groups, organise feedback and use their own political knowledge to challenge viewpoints. Our students were complimented for the breadth of their knowledge, ability to form and construct arguments and the maturity they showed in facilitating the discussion groups.

Mr Newton said, “This was a very enjoyable day in which our students developed their understanding of the ‘Brexit’ debate further, but also importantly showed their ability to listen and challenge views that they disagreed with or viewed as unjustified.”
