The school has forged strong links with Granada TV, our students having featured in 3 political debates in the lead-up to the 2015 General Election. Recently, 2 of our Year 13 students, Emma Bentley and Aaron Boileau, were invited to take part in a round-the-table discussion of current political issues. They were chosen to represent first-time voters in the North West. Other panel members were Professor Jane Green (political expert from the University of Manchester), Qassim Afzal (leading Muslim community leader), Daniel Hewitt (ITV political correspondent) and an undergraduate from the University of Salford. The discussion was featured in Granada's weekly politics show.
