The Results of the Loreto Mock EU Referendum

After some lively campaigning by Mrs Mellon’s Year 14 Economics students, a mock referendum was held among Loreto’s staff and students about whether we should leave the EU or retain our membership, in the lead-up to the real EU Referendum in June.

After a week of online voting, the results were announced on Tuesday 26th April, with 56% of Loreto’s staff and students voting to stay in EU.

However, an interesting statistic was that among Loreto’s sixth form and staff, 64% voted to leave… interesting given that this demographic represents those who will be eligible to vote ‘for real’ in June.

We await the real referendum with interest!
