Stephen Page, Government and Politics Tutor at Strode said: "Our students found the session extremely interesting and enjoyed discussing a variety of issues with Sir Graham Watson.

"The visit is part of a series of talks to our Government and Politics students which are designed to help them understand current political issues and enable them to become informed future citizens. Other visitors have included a BBC journalist, a spokesman for the Green Party and the Anti - Library Cuts in Somerset Campaign."

In 2011 Strode's A level Government and Politics students achieved a 100% pass rate, with 64% achieving high A* to B grades. A number of Strode students go on to study politics and related subjects at a range of top universities in the UK.
