On Friday the 27th of November Professor Lord Norton of Louth, Professor of Government and Director of the Centre for Legislative studies at the University of Hull and life peer visited the Academy to speak to an audience comprising The College @ Sirius, Year 11 Group 1 Intervention and Year 10 Voice students. Lord Norton discussed an array of topics ranging from Parliamentary Law Making practices to real-life current political issues. The students were invited to ask questions and provided Lord Norton some really interesting talking points.
We would like to thank Lord Norton for giving up his time and affording the students such a unique opportunity to experience an expert in the field delivering a thought-provoking talk which has really invigorated intellectual debate within the Academy and encouraged participants to consider a career in politics and its associated disciplines.
Lord Norton tweeted us after the event to say: ‘@siriusacademy Very much enjoyed my visit. An excellent and engaged audience.’
A huge well done to all those involved.
