Question Time at Edge Grove

Our Headmster, Ben Evans, hosted a Question Time session in our Assembly Hall, on behalf of the Radlett Youth Council, with a panel including Oliver Dowden MP, Cllr Caroline Clapper and Professor Barnett (Chair of West Herts NHS Trust).

The range of questions asked from the audience aged 11 to 18 years was impressive and so was the lively debate from the panellists. A range of issues were discussed from a review of the last year in politics, Donald Trump’s ego, social media, how the NHS will cope with an ageing population, through to house building, dog walking and traffic congestion in Radlett.

This very worthwhile enrichment event encompassed everything that we strive to achieve at Edge Grove and complemented our Year 7 and 8 Baccalaureate perfectly. It allowed children to hear about national and local politics, watch a lively and unscripted debate by people actively involved in politics and reinforce our guiding principle of the week - Global and Local Responsibility.
