As part of the ‘Peers in Schools’ programme organised by the Lord Speaker’s Office, Lord Lexden spoke to Senior pupils about the differences between the House of Lords and the House of Commons, the role and composition of the House of Lords and how bills are passed.

He met members of the School Council and was impressed to learn about their recent assembly on gender stereotyping and about the School Eco-Committee which recently took part in the Great British Clean up.

Lord Lexden also answered questions from pupils on topics including how he became interested in politics, what qualities are required to be a peer and the ubiquitous subject of Brexit.
