Mock trial for Year 8

This weekend, we took 12 Year 8 pupils to spend their Saturday at Worcester Magistrates Court.

They took part in the Citizenship Foundation’s mock trial competition.

The event is designed to help improve young people’s life skills, their understanding of the justice system and the legal system.

Whilst the team didn’t make it through to the next round, they put up a great fight with only one of nine teams on the day getting through to the national heat. All pupils contributed outstanding effort and have been preparing since October, for this exciting opportunity.

Thanks to the excellent teamwork of the group, our defendant Freddie Hunter won the ‘Pupil of the day’ trophy. Out of approximately 120 pupils present, this is a wonderful achievement for Freddie, the team, and the school!
