School Visits to Parliament

Much of the content on this website was established while I was a Member of Parliament. As of the 3rd May Parliament will be dissolved so there will be no Members of Parliament until after the General Election on June 8th. 

Every year MPs welcome hundreds of school students to Parliament. Damian always tries to meet school visitors from Ashford to talk about the politics and history of Westminster, the work of an MP and about local issues.

The Education Service runs a Visit Parliament programme, designed for students aged 7 to 18 and includes an education tour followed by a workshop run by Education Service staff. There is some financial support available for trips from the Parliamentary Education Service who do a fantastic job at organising the visits. The best way to arrange a tour is to contact them directly: Remember that you will need to book well in advance. 

Visits to London can also take in nearby London sights such as Tate Britain, the National Gallery or the London Eye before heading home. 

Damian also carries out a programme of school visits throughout the constituency. The visits are a good opportunity for students and teachers to talk to their MP about politics, as well as for Damian to see the school at work. Please contact us if you would like Damian to visit the school.

For more information have a look at their website or contact the Education Service directly on 020 7219 4496 to organise a tour.
