Watford Grammar School for Girls students welcome Speaker of House of Commons, John Bercow
The Government and Politics Society of Watford Grammar School for Girls welcomed the Speaker of the House of Commons, the Right Hon John Bercow, to speak to the Sixth Form on Thursday.
The meeting was attended by more than 450 people, including, in addition to the sixth form girls, parents, ex pupils and some politics students from the boys grammar school.
The Speaker came to highlight the role of Parliament within the political process and at the same time give an insight into goings on behind the scenes at Westminster.
He used his own experiences to motivate the students to trust in their own value and judgement and not be deterred from pursuing their ambitions because of the "opposition of entrenched interests".
