Student from East Norfolk Sixth Form Centre visited the epicentre of European politics on a class trip.

Students travelled to Strasbourg in France, home of the European Parliament and Council of Europe, as they learned more about the law and politics of the continent.

They were given guided tours of both institutions, giving them insights into the law-making process and the need for communication between nations.

Students probed representatives with such questions as “do convicted criminals deserve human rights”, as well as discussing possible fallouts of Brexit.

Ros More, law teacher, said: “Visits such as these are invaluable in helping students to shape their understanding of the relationship between the United Kingdom and the rest of the European Union.”

Ben Fleuty, one of the students, said: “Visiting Parliament and the Council of Europe was inviting and charming.

“The tour guides were enthusiastic and ready to answer all the questions we had.”
