After aligning with the parties, the pupils held speeches and debates on topics ranging from health, education, Brexit and the environment.
As campaigning reached its peak, the pupils voted in Shephalbury's own polling station - with the Conservatives cruising to victory.
Mr Ben Conway, headteacher at Shephalbury Park, said: "This has been a valuable experience for the children in our community and we are very proud of them. They developed their understanding of democracy and learned about many aspects of politics."
