A group of students were selected to take part in the European Youth Parliament Competition.

Nine sixth formers from Beths Grammar School, Hartford Road, Bexley, participated at Liverpool Hope University on July 5 and 6, just missing out on the top spot and runners up position.

Jack Buckee, Connor Mitton, George Puttick, Joe Munday, Pierce Chalmers, Max Robb, Molly Paterson, Ellen Hatch and Abigail Collins all attended the National Session having been victorious in the Regional Session of the European Youth Parliament in the United Kingdom for the South East of England.

They debated issues such as human trafficking and unemployment, and judges told them they were impressed with their performances.

The students have all now become members of the European Youth Parliament UK with an aim of representing them in the South East region.
