We are delighted to announce that L6 student Tom has been selected by the European Youth Parliament (EYP), to attend this summer’s National Session having stood out as one of the best students at the regional forum that took place on 20/21 March. Below is an extract from the email that we received from one of the Trustees of EYP.

“As Trustee for National Sessions at EYPUK, I am getting in touch to inform you of the selection results for our Regional Sessions this year. I can confirm that the following students from your school have been selected: Tom F.

The standard was very high this year, and we are sorry that not all students could be selected, but we are grateful for every single student who participated in our Regional Sessions this year. Selected students have been invited to attend our National Session this summer, taking place digitally between the 2nd-6th of August 2021.”

Mrs Parsons, Director of Sixth Form said; “This is excellent news – a real affirmation of the outstanding quality of debating and research that Tom brought to the Birkdale team.”
