School Visits in Cheadle and Westminster

In Cheadle

Mary carries out a programme of school visits throughout the constituency and visits are a good opportunity for students and teachers to talk to their MP about issues, as well as for Mary to see the school at work.

If you would like Mary to visit the school please get in touch on 0161 672 6855.

In Westminster

Every year Members of Parliament welcome hundreds of school students to Parliament. The usual format is a coach trip, arriving in London during the morning for a free walking tour of the Palace of Westminster, see Westminster for more details.

Mary always tries to meet visitors from the constituency to talk about the politics and history of Westminster, the work of an MP and about local issues. The best numbers are 10-30 on each visit and repeated tours from the same school are acceptable. 

Visits to London can also take in nearby London sights such as Tate Britain, the National Gallery or the London Eye before heading home. There are often free educational exhibitions in Parliament too.

The best day for a school tour is a Tuesday when Parliament is sitting (October to July) where students will have the opportunity to meet and have a Q&A session with Mary.
