The General Election in October 1959 caused great excitement and activity in the country as a whole, and this was reflected in the mock election which was held at the school.

The stage in the hall was arranged as for a proper election.  Special ballot forms and boxes had been printed for the occasion and the correct number of Sixth Form officials were on duty.

Voting continued throughout the day, and, finally the whole election was over, except for the results.  The Conservatives had won the seat, closely followed by the Labour party.  The Liberals were third and the Independents fourth.
