STUDENTS from Chiswick Community School will travel to London next week to thrash out their concerns over education cuts and rising tuition fees with MP Mary Macleod.
Students from years 10, 11 and those over the age of 16 will discuss the education White Paper with the member for Isleworth, Brentford and Chiswick.
Headteacher Tony Ryan said: "Many of our students are worried about the loss of the EMA [educational maintenance allowance] and the raising of university tuition fees. I am delighted that Ms Macleod has agreed to meet our students and allow them to discuss their concerns."
Last week more than 50 Chiswick Community School students planned to mount a political protest in Chiswick, but abandoned the idea after being told they may be arrested.
They originally planned to leave school at 10.30am last Tuesday and march to Chiswick High Road to gather outside Sainsbury's, before travelling to the nearby Conservative Association.
After being forced to change their plans, the group decided to join the larger protest in central London instead.
One parent posted on Twitter: "My 14yr olds (sic) crowd of student protesters in Chiswick were told they would be arrested if they tried to protest outside Conservative party HQ."
Two weeks ago, almost 500 students walked out of the Burlington Lane school as part of a nationwide protest.
The representatives who visit Ms Macleod will report back to each year group with their findings after the Christmas break.
Mary Macleod said: "I certainly appreciate the concerns that the students have and I am very aware of the strength of feeling on this issue. Unfortunately, due to the difficult economic climate we have to make some difficult economic decisions and this is one of them.
"I am certainly in favour of proposals that support lower-income students, widen participation and increase opportunities for all who choose to pursue higher education opportunities. As a result I welcome the commitment that there should be no upfront tuition fees for students."
