Youngsters from Oakham School were given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of having their photograph taken outside the door of 10 Downing Street.

During their cross curriculum visit to London, the Form 2 pupils worked as a team to plan their route in London and visited major attractions, including Downing Street and Buckingham Place.

Pupils spoke to diplomatic protection officers and a press team that covers Downing Street. Head of citizenship Viv Lamb said: “It was a great opportunity for pupils to take responsibility for their own learning.”
