Huge congratulations to Madeline Jeffrey in Year 12 who won  Wajid Khan MEP's North West 'Britain's Place in Europe' competition. Madeline was selected as the overall competition winner for her thoughtful essay on the subject of Brexit.

As detailed in the competition guidelines, Madeline has won a place at the European Youth Event in Strasbourg in June 2018. The prize also provides places for the majority of the Year 12 Politics class. The prize includes flights and accommodation for the whole group of ten people, covered in accordance with EU MEP expenditure guidelines.

 Wajid Khan MEP visited Hutton on Friday 26th January to congratulate Madeline and speak to the Politics class about the EU, Brexit and his work as an MEP. He also told us how beautiful Strasbourg is and whetted our appetites for the trip in June.

 Madeline was surprised and overjoyed when she commented, “Through the essay competition, it was extremely interesting to look at the UK's relationship with the rest of Europe. In particular, I was fascinated by the idea of British identity compared to European identity.”

 In response to the news, Mr Bradshaw said, “I am delighted that Madeline has been successful in winning the competition; her essay was both thought provoking and well researched, providing clear evidence of the hard work and dedication she has put into her studies since joining the Sixth Form at Hutton, qualities we look to instil in all of our students. I am also very pleased that Madeline’s success provides an outstanding opportunity for her classmates to experience life at the European Parliament in Strasbourg and would like to thank Mr Khan for enabling this to take place.”

 JSH 2Mr Hill added, “I am so pleased that Madeline won this competition and very excited at the prospect of taking our A level Politics students to Strasbourg to see first hand the important activities and events organised by the EU. Teaching politics is extremely rewarding and this is, in no small part, due to the support we get from politicians like Wajid Khan in taking the time and effort to engage with our young people.”
