A group of Maghull students took the chance to take a walk through the corridors of power last week when they visited Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson in Westminster.
A Level History students from Deyes High were given an insight into the workings of Parliament during their one day visit when they were taken on a tour of the Houses of Parliament.
Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson also gave the pupils a talk about the workings of Parliament and the role of a Member of Parliament.
Speaking after the visit, Bill said he was delighted to be able to give the Deyes High pupils the chance to see the workings of Parliament.
Bill said: "It was a pleasure to meet with the Deyes High pupils in Parliament.
"They were clearly all very interested in the working of the Houses of Parliament and the amazing history of the Palace of Westminster.
"The pupils were all very interested in what goes on in the House of Commons, how the business of the House is conducted and what MPs do to represent their constituents' interests. I even referred to their visit during a debate in the Chamber.
"I'd like to thank Deyes High for giving their pupils the chance to visit Westminster, the Parliamentary Education Service for organising the trip and the pupils for showing such an interest and for also asking some excellent questions.
"Who knows, we may see some of them in the House of Commons in the years to come."
