General Election 2024: Newbury’s Trinity School holds its own mock election, with the Green Party coming out winners





A Newbury school has been inspiring the next generation of voters with a mock election, writes Joshua Barnes.

Students at Trinity School participated in their own version of the general election last Friday (June 28), in order for them to experience voting and so they now know what it is like when the time comes for them.

Sixth formers represented the four major parties, putting together a video displaying the manifestos of the parties for the other students to watch in the lead up to the mock election.

The voting took place in the morning, with the votes being counted and logged.

And it was the Green Party that came out victorious.

Dr Charlotte Wilson, executive headteacher at Trinity, said: “This was an important event for us to hold as a school, replicating what it is like to vote in a general election.

“When the time comes for our students to vote they have had the experience of gaining information from manifestos to make an informed choice before voting.

“Thank you to all four students who ran as candidates and to Mr Kenneally for organising the event.”
