Student mock elections

Chart showing percentage of student votes- Green with 18%, UKIP with 11%, Lib Dem with 1%, Labour with 57%, and Conservatives with 9%

The week leading up to the general election saw The City Academy, Hackney take part in a mock election, with five of our House Captains and Prefects representing each major political party.

Each student representative wrote and delivered a speech in a special assembly, focussing on education, housing, and employment in line with the policies of their given party. All students were then encouraged to listen to these speeches and vote for the party whose views they agreed with.

The results were announced the day of the general election and with 57% of the vote it went to Tara Adeyemi, representing the Labour Party.
