Friday 16th March, Paul visited The Royal Wolverhampton School. The school was founded in 1850 originally as an orphanage, but is open today as a fully co-educational independent school, which educates over 450 pupils of whom 125 are boarders.
During the visit Paul held a question and answer session with pupils from years 5 and 6. A whole range of topics were discussed including what made Paul become an MP and his views on the current legal age for voting.
Paul finished the visit by having lunch with the school's Student Cabinet, Headmaster, Mr Mark Heywood and other staff members. The members of the Student Cabinet put a number of questions to Paul including how to increase the engagement of young people in politics and life in Westminster.
During the visit Paul said, "I began the morning receiving a tour of the nursery section, where I met the Head of the Junior School and other staff to discuss the excellent work being done to provide an excellent educational start to over 100 children.
"I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to The Royal Wolverhampton School today. I was encouraged by the enthusiasm shown by the pupils of all ages to engage in the political debates of today and I look forward to visiting again in the future."
Welcome. My name is Paul Uppal and I am the Member of Parliament for Wolverhampton South West.
I hope that this website will keep you up to date with what I am doing for the people of Wolverhampton both in the constituency and in Westminster.
