At Brentwood we seek to provide opportunities for our students to enhance their understanding of the world around them and the part they can play in being active citizens in today’s society. There are many opportunities for students of all ages to deepen and enhance their understanding of the role of politics.
In particular, both the Sir Antony Browne Society (SABS) and the Junior Sir Antony Browne Society (JSABS), which meet regularly throughout the year, provide opportunities for students to listen to politicians and to take part in debates themselves to help them develop a critical understanding of the issues which are shaping our society today.
The Politics Department offers a range of activities for those students who wish to extend and broaden their knowledge and interest in politics.
Meeting and debating with politicians with visits from leading MPs and party spokesmen in SABS
Trips - visits are organised to conferences in London to hear politicians and academics. There is an Annual visit to Parliament to tour the buildings, meet with a peer and hear House of Commons proceedings in the Gallery.
Debates are hosted in school between the main party candidates at European and General elections with student question time
Model United Nations
Brentwood School has taken part, and hosted, a Model UN. A great opportunity to work with students from other schools and deepen one’s understanding of global issues.
