The year group were split into 12 parties and undertook tasks including creating their own logo and slogan, putting together a five point manifesto and presenting their views to the voting masses (the year 3 electorate).

The week ended in a democratic ballot which saw the F.U.N (Fun Ultra Nationalists) and The Relax Party achieve a coalition.

You can see what priorities were paramount in this election below.  (more…)


After a well fought campaign from all the parties, the votes were eagerly cast to see who would run the school. In a very close finish, the Active Democrats won by just one vote! Congratulations to the winning party and all those who took part. We look forward to seeing what the Active Democracts will do with their power and whether they will deliver on their promises.
