'A' Level Politics visit to the Supreme Court

Thursday 01 March 2018

The A Level Politics students braved the snowy weather for a very successful trip to the Supreme Court. They had an introduction to the role of the Supreme Court and studied some landmark cases such as:

- a case about school uniform and the legal regulation of religious symbols and dress under the Human Rights Act 1998.

- a case about whether it was unlawful discrimination for Christian hotel owners to refuse a double-bedded room to a same-sex couple.

- a case about whether a bus driver should compel other passengers, disabled or non-disabled, to vacate a wheelchair space if it is required by a wheelchair user.

- a case about whether the government could initiate withdrawal from the European Union without an Act of the UK Parliament.

All of the students were excellent ambassadors for our sixth form.
