Kingsley Academy Voted- Results In

Students at Kingsley Academy engaged in Mock Election activities leading up to Election Day, Thursday 7th May 2015 when all students had the chance to vote in a Mock Election. Students voted either for the Conservative Party, the Labour Party or the Liberal Democrats. 

Hearty congratulations to Krishma who won a majority of votes. Best wishes and praise to our runners-up Aixa and Moataz.


The 3 Candidates - Moataz (Conservative candidate), Krishma (Labour candidate) and Aixa (Liberal Democrat candidate) led Election Campaign Teams consisting of students from across all Year Groups and delivered their first set of speeches in assemblies. They participated in an after school Political Debate to which students, staff, parents and Governors were invited. During the debate Candidates went head to head on a range of issues including immigration, education, health, employment, crime, and the economy. Candidates gave short speeches followed by Questions and Answers from the electorate.


On Election Day the ‘Polling Station’ closed at 1:00 pm, after which the Counting Clerks counted the votes.  Once all the votes had been counted and the winner was confirmed, the Returning Officer visited the Principal’s office to inform the Principal of the result. The Principal then emailed the results to all staff and Tutors informed their Tutor Groups during Tutor Time.

We also submitted our results to the Hansard Society who were collating the results from a number of schools holding mock elections and who registered with them prior to the election.


The Mock Election at Kingsley Academy:

  • provided students with the opportunity to gain a sound understanding of the principles of democracy and politics in action as we brought the political process to life through an interactive, engaging and exciting drama of a real election.
  • actively engaged students with the issues that concern them by giving them the opportunity to stand as party candidates, run campaigns and vote on Election Day.
  • gave students the chance to develop their public speaking, debating, organisational and time management skills and teamwork.
  • was an opportunity for the Kingsley Academy Community to work together on a single Project. (more...)
