On 8th July 10 pupils and 2 members of staff were fortunate enough to be given an exclusive tour of Number 10 Downing Street.
It was an opportunity to gain a unique insight into this historic building in such interesting political times. The pupils were able to sit around the Cabinet table and our guide for the day shared facts and amusing anecdotes from an insider’s point of view.
The pupils were given access to the famous staircase that displayed all previous Prime Ministers photographs. (Unfortunately, Hugh Grant did not dance down it in Love Actually!). The pupils were taken through the garden and through all the reception rooms where many banquets had been held.
The pupils were also shown around Number 11, which was an added bonus. It was an amazing day for all pupils and staff to see behind the scenes of Number 10.
