General Election

Students at Etone College have been exploring the policies and issues of the main political parties for the 2024 General Election. 

In form times, students discussed the different election manifestos, considering policy areas such as the economy, health and education. These discussions helped students to reach conclusions as to which parties would be best to vote for in the Etone Mock Election on Friday 28th June. 

During the Monday Period 1 Learning for Life lessons, students learned about the election process – the voting system used for the election, the rules regarding the election process, and the election timetable. 

Students also attended General Election assemblies delivered by Mr Bonner and Ms Daffern, where the main party leaders and their core values were presented. 

On Thursday 27th June, fifteen Year 9 students went to the University of Birmingham with Mr Bonner and Mr Barclay-Elliott to attend a Future Voters Forum. At this event, students were invited in groups to create their own political parties, with their own distinct ideological beliefs. Students were also involved in a Mock Parliament debate, to decide whether to support Votes at 16, or compulsory National Service. 

On Friday 28th June, students voted during form time in Etone’s Mock General Election, with completed ballots sent down to the ballot boxes at reception and the careers office. These votes were verified and counted by our School Councillors on Monday 1st July, with the results shared and declared during form time on Thursday 4th July. 

It was great to see students engaging in this process and voting in a democratic mock election.
