After a successful day of voting on Thursday last week, the Student Council would like to thank all students who participated and we would like to share the results of the 2017 Mock Election. We hope that this opportunity has allowed students to become more politically aware and, as the current Student Council, we hope that this event will be run during future elections to offer ineligible individuals the voting experience and the chance to share their political views.
Over half of the school population voted with a 54% turn out. Year 7 was the most active voting group (21%) with Year 10 coming close second.
Below are the overall total percentage of votes for each party.
- Labour 62%
- Conservatives 8%
- Green Party 8%
- Liberal Democrats 4%
- SNP 1%
- UKIP 15%
- Plaid Cymru 1%
- Other 1%
Once again, thank you to everyone that voted and we look forward to comparing our results with the country’s decision.
