We would like to send our warmest congratulations to Ben Margolis who, last week, was elected the Undergraduate President of the Cambridge Student Union, after four rounds of voting in a hotly contested election.

We’re sure Ben will do an amazing job as SUP as he was truly passionate about politics when he was an Emanuel pupil. The Portcullis references him asking Lord Peter Hain whether he became more ‘moderate’ as he got older! Maybe we’ll be asking Ben the same questions in a few years?

As well as being a school prefect, Ben rowed and was a talented singer and musician. He had a genuine star-turn in The Producers (pictured with Lizzie Abouchar) where they played Franz and Marlene in a real scene-stealing over-the-top performance. Ben takes up his exciting new position later in the year.
