Spalding Grammar School stages Mock Presidential election
Spalding Grammar School is building on the success of its Parliament Week by looking to elections on the far side of the pond.
Classes have become US states, with governors and deputy governors elected.
It's a two-party race at the school but the Democrats and the Republicans aren't getting a look in.
On Tuesday governors and deputy governors for the Alliance and Fraternity parties made passionate pitches to their electorates as they sought the honour of becoming the next resident at the White House.
The chosen candidate for Alliance was Daniel Dorey-Rodriguez, with Dominic Allen as deputy, while Fraternity's Rebecca Long took the top job with Franklin Stokes as deputy.
This is week two of a whirlwind, three-week presidential election campaign.
Next week the two presidential candidates will go head to head in a debate and district councillor Jan Whitbourn will be in school to run a presidential 'Question Time'.
The election is due to take place next Thursday, with staff and students voting for their president, and the following day their will be a mock inauguration.
As the election campaign got under way, the school's head of law and politics, Alexandra Dearing, told students: "This is a great opportunity to get involved in politics in the school and we hope everyone will take this in their stride over the next three weeks and really make the election competitive."
As well as learning the ins and outs of the American electoral system, students have also been getting to know all about the states assigned to their classes.
One of the tasks for each class was to prepare a top trumps card on their state.
