School Council Leader Sophie Chapman said: "What a fantastic day it was. Not only did the children have the chance to venture into the Houses of Parliament, but they were also surprised with a visit from our Member of Parliament, Eleanor Laing.
"It was such a delight to see the children buzzing with excitement and enthusiasm throughout the day."
School Council representative Summer said: "The trip was spectacular. I really enjoyed meeting our MP and talking about how our laws are made. It was certainly something that I will always remember."
